  • Patent protection advocate seeks to halt Nortel patent sale

    The leader of the Open Invention Network has put out an all-call to help it fight the pending sale of Nortel's patent portfolio to a consortium of vendors led by Apple and Microsoft. Keith Bergelt, CEO of OIN, wants developers and users to step up and share their viewpoints and stories with the US Department of Justice, which is investigating the sale. The pending sale is currently under regulatory approval but the consortium hopes to close the deal in the third quarter.
