Google Buys More Patents from IBM to Protect Android
>By James Lenhart
On Tuesday, search engine giant Google acquired 1023 more patents from IBM. If you remember, back in July Google purchased 1000 patents from IBM ranging in all sorts of things; nevertheless it seems that Google needs more. We know this time around the patents have to do with, “COMMUNICATIONS ON A NETWORK” to “SELF-ALIGNED DOUBLE-GATE MOSFET BY SELECTIVE EPITAXY AND SILICON WAFER BONDING TECHNIQUES.” The company recently purchased more than 17,000 patents from Motorola Mobility, and is doing everything in their power to protect Android and it’s related services. Details are scarce as usual with no leads other than the U.S. Patent Office public filings.
