Via Licensing Announces One-Time Fee Waivers For Initial Licensees Of Its LTE Patent Pool

Via Licensing Corporation today announced an “early-adopter” incentive for initial signing licensees of its LTE (Long-Term Evolution) patent pool announced earlier this month. Any entity that executes the LTE patent license with Via by April 12, 2013, will benefit from a waiver of license fees (and interest) that would have been due for products sold prior to October 15, 2012, implementing the LTE standard.

“Our early-adopter incentive provides great value to licensees that have already been delivering LTE products to the market,” said John Ehler, Director of Wireless Programs, Via Licensing. “This limited-time incentive offers a significant cost savings for companies that need access to the broad coverage of LTE essential patents provided through the pool.”

Full details of the incentive and the complete terms of the license agreement can be obtained directly from Via Licensing. Parties manufacturing or selling LTE devices or components and other implementers of the LTE standard should contact Via by visiting or by sending an email message to to obtain more information about the LTE patent pool and to request an LTE Patent License Agreement.

AT&T, Clearwire Corporation, Deutsche Telekom AG, DTVG Licensing, HP, KDDI Corporation, NTT DOCOMO, SK Telecom, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, and ZTE Corporation are the initial companies that have agreed to offer their essential LTE patents through Via Licensing’s patent pool. Via’s LTE patent pool provides convenient access to the LTE essential IP of the participating companies in a single, cost-effective transaction.

Participation as a licensor in the LTE licensing program is open to all owners of LTE essential patents. Any party that believes they hold a patent essential to the LTE standard is encouraged to submit the patent for evaluation and, once qualified, to offer their essential patents through the LTE patent pool.
