Microsoft and GoPro strike patent licensing deal

Microsoft has signed a patent licensing agreement with action camera company GoPro, the tech giant announced. According to Microsoft, the licensing agreement covers "certain file storage and other system technologies." From Microsoft:

"This agreement with GoPro shows the incredible breadth of technology sharing enabled through patent transactions," said Nick Psyhogeos, president of Microsoft Technology Licensing. "Microsoft's licensing of personal wearable technologies is seeing strong demand as we partner with companies from all industries to optimize solutions for their customers around the globe."

GoPro is just the latest in a long line of companies to strike up patent licensing deals with Microsoft. As is typically the case, the terms of the deal were not disclosed, presumably for competitive reasons.
