DVD6C Lowers Royalty Rates for DVD Read-only Discs


The DVD6C Licensing Group (DVD6C) is revising its worldwide patent licensing program to offer a reduced royalty rate for DVD Read-Only Discs to licensees.

Currently, the roylaty rate for Read-Only Discs (DVD-Video Discs, DVD-ROM Discs, and DVD-Audio Discs) is US$0.04 per disc. This rate is provided to licensees who have no overdue or incorrect royalty reports or overdue or underpaid royalties (including back royalties) and are otherwise in compliance with their license agreement with DVD6C.

The revised licensing program is as follows:

- US$0.035 per disc for all DVD Read-Only Discs sold or otherwise transferred on or after July 1, 2013.

- US$0.033 per disc for all DVD Read-Only Discs sold or otherwise transferred on or after January 1, 2014.

- US$0.03 per disc for all DVD Read-Only Discs sold or otherwise transferred on or after January 1, 2015.

These reduced royalty rates will be available to such licensees for Read-Only Discs sold or otherwise transferred during any reporting period beginning on or after July 1, 2013, provided that the licensee was "in good standing" as of the due date for payment of royalties for the immediately preceding reporting period or, to qualify for the reduced rate for the second half of 2013, that the licensee entered into a new license agreement incorporating the revised royalty terms and was in good standing as of January 31, 2014.

New or existing licensees interested in receiving the reduced royalty rate may enter into a new license agreement incorporating the revised royalty terms. Only those licensees who enter into a revised agreement will be eligible for the reduced royalty rate, and only those who sign the revised agreement by, and are in good standing on, January 31, 2014, will qualify for the reduced rate for the second half of 2013.

The DVD6C is consisted of nine developers of DVD technology and formats - Hitachi Consumer Electronics Co., Ltd., JVC KENWOOD Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., SANYO Electric Co., Ltd., Sharp Corporation, Toshiba Corporation and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Inc.
