Microsoft And Dell Join Forces In A Patent Licensing Agreement

According to Microsoft's announcement yesterday, a new partnership has been forged between the company and Dell. The two leading tech mavens have signed an agreement in which both parties have agreed to licence each other's intellectual property. Although few of the terms of agreement have been shared with the public, we do know that the agreement is related to Android and Chrome platforms, as well as Xbox consoles.

 

This agreement means Dell will pay royalties to Microsoft whenever it ships devices that run on Google's operating systems, such as Android or Chrome. Microsoft, on the other hand, will be “On consideration to Dell for a licence for Xbox gaming consoles,” according to the announcement.

 

In a press release yesterday, the corporate vice president and deputy general counsel of the Innovation and Intellectual Property Group at Microsoft, Horacio Gutierrez, made a statement, saying, “Our agreement with Dell shows what can be accomplished when companies share intellectual property. We have been partnering with technology manufacturers and vendors for many years to craft licensing deals, instead of litigation strategies.”

Dell's vice president of End User Computing Products, Neil Hand, went on to add, “Today’s announcement builds on our history of collaborating to bring new technologies to market. The relationship between Dell and Microsoft continues to help Dell deliver choice and flexibility to customers looking for the best technology to meet their needs.”

The declining PC market has led to manufacturers moving away from building only Windows machines, and turning towards the more favourable Google products. Over the years, Microsoft has signed similar Android and Chrome operating systems-related patent agreements with over 20 companies. The Dell agreement is another move forward for Microsoft in its aforementioned expansion policy.
