Lenovo: the complex world of computing IP


Lenovo: the complex world of computing IP


Lenovo has been active in the area of patent licensing and acquisition, but it will engage only if the price is right, as vice president of litigation and IP Ira Blumberg tells WIPR.

The Lenovo we know today might be a relatively young company, but that doesn’t stop it mixing with the big players.

Lenovo was formed when China-based Legend Holdings changed its name to Lenovo in 2004 and, one year later, purchased IBM’s PC business.

The new company was in the fortunate position of inheriting patents and patent licences with some of the world’s major computer companies.
