Via's licensors and licensees, as well as other partners and members of the broader technology community, have used Via Licensing's Patent Bank to address their most sophisticated IP needs.
The Patent Bank is an innovative offering that acquires rights to high quality standard essential patents and provides a robust structure that can be useful to different constituencies. These patents are essential to key technologies and are placed in Via Licensing's patent pools and offered along with other licensors' patents at fair and reasonable rates. This creative licensing solution combines the benefits of a traditional patent pool with the risk mitigation of a defensive aggregator by providing licenses to patents through Via's programs.
The Patent Bank announced its first acquisition in May 2019 with nearly 100 essential Long Term Evolution (LTE) patents.
