LG, Google enter into patent cross-licensing agreement

LG LogoLG has announced that it has entered into a long-term patent licensing agreement with Google. This agreement will cover broad range of products and technologies, noted LG in a press release.

According to the company, as part of the agreement, both LG and Google will have access to each-other’s existing patents as well as those filed in the next ten years. There is no word on the exact duration of this agreement, but it is at least a decade.

“We’re pleased to enter into this agreement with a leading global technology company like LG. By working together on cross-licenses like this, companies can focus on bringing great products and services to consumers around the world,” said Allen Lo, deputy general counsel for patents at Google.
