Microsoft boosts sales using patents

Microsoft is using its intellectual property to generate sales from a number of growing IT developers and suppliers.

Microsoft has signed intellectual property deals with Ascender, Inrix, D-Link, BridgeCo, Lexar Media, I-O Data Device, GoVideo and SMC Networks, who will use a variety of Microsoft technologies, including Windows fonts, systems that support vehicle traffic flow solutions, and wireless connectivity.

"By licensing the intellectual property generated from our research and development efforts, we're able to help start-ups and other high-growth companies expand their businesses," said David Kaefer, Microsoft director of business development in the intellectual property and licensing group.
