Microsoft and Dell have entered into a new patent-licensing agreement to enable both parties to utilize respective technologies and innovation without the possibility of litigation. It's a strong move by the companies to ensure the safety of products released in the public domain, be it the Xbox One or Dell's Chromebook.
Horacio Gutierrez, corporate vice president of the Innovation and Intellectual Property Group at Microsoft, commented on the news stating the deal will cease unnecessary disputes between the two parties, saving time and money. Both companies have a long standing partnership and this agreement opens up a cleaner development route.
Recent years have paved way to numerous law suits being filed by companies against one another in the tech field. It's positive to see such deals being made to prevent this. Hopefully other companies will take note and we'll see more agreements being signed in the future.
