|I think that's true. |
My original comment was a reaction to the comments by the attendee about the
licensing rates. I don't think those are simple license royalties but represent
the net difference between the relative strengths of the portfolios and are a
sort of balancing of payment. Using number of units sold by both parties would
tend to even out the payment.
If for example A used B's patents and B used A's they could agree that A's
patents were more valuable and B would pay 0.45% of the sale
price of its products to account for the difference. That would allow the
payment to vary depending on price and quantity. It would be easily accounted
for in product pricing and easily audited.
