Philips introduced Philips patent licenses for Blu-ray Disc media and hardware as per April 2, 2008.
The Dutch company said that it wants to create clarity for companies that
manufacture Blu-ray Disc products and has therefore decided to
introduce licenses for the use of Philips? patents relevant for
Blu-ray Disc. This in anticipation of the future launch of a joint
Blu-ray Disc license program, in which the patents of a number of
companies are combined in one single license agreement.
Companies interested in entering into license agreements with Philips
for the use of Philips patents in the manufacture and sale of Blu-ray
Disc products may contact Philips Intellectual
