Microsoft Licensed Design Patents From Apple

August 14, 2012 1 Comment

A lot of tech information has really come out to the public recently via the Apple vs Samsung debacle in court. One piece of information came out yesterday regarding Apple design patents. Microsoft has licensed design patents from Apple that gives Microsoft the ok to borrow a few design cues from Apple. The agreement however does state that Microsoft may not blatantly copy any designs (“anti-cloning agreement”).

Patent licensing director Boris Teksler said.

“There was no right with respect to these design patents to build clones of any type”

While we don’t know exactly what as licensed yet, I am pretty happy that we will not be seeing a Microsoft vs Apple war in the courtroom over this anytime soon.
