Fractus and Motorola sign a global patent licensing deal relating to antenna technology

BARCELONA, SPAIN – On April 7, 2010, Fractus S.A. of Barcelona, Spain announced that it has entered into a non-exclusive, worldwide patent license agreement with Motorola, Inc. The agreement includes a license under all of Fractus’ patents related to internal antennas and covers the sale of all Motorola products.

“This deal represents a major milestone in our efforts to obtain recognition for the valuable technology our company developed and brought to industry,” said Rubén Bonet, President & CEO of Fractus. IPotential, LLC served as broker for Fractus in the negotiation of this license agreement.

Fractus filed recently a patent infringement case against ten cell phone manufacturers in the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, Case No. 6:09-cv-203. Fractus is represented in the Tyler case by Susman Godfrey L.L.P. and Heim, Payne & Chorush, L.L.P.  Motorola was not a party to this litigation.
