The patents' expiry will cost Europe's biggest electronics company 100-200 million guilders ($43-86 million) in profit per year, evening newspaper NRC Handelsblad said. The NRC quoted analysts as saying Philips earned more than 60 percent of the patent income on compact discs, with co-developer Sony of Japan the rest.
