Microsoft has entered into a new patent cross-licensing agreement with Japan-based Fuji Xerox. The new deal expands on a previous partnership the two companies signed in 2007 and allows them to use each other's patents.
Fuji Xerox is a joint venture of Fujifilm and Xerox Corporation and sells "multifunction devices, printers and production printers" worldwide. It's possible Microsoft could use some of the digital imaging patents owned by Fuji Xerox in its products. Microsoft has signed over 1,100 licensing agreements since it started its IP licensing program in 2003.
