IBM Assigns 217 More Patent Filings to 谷歌 including Wireless Phones and Javascript Widgets

分享是关怀!

看起来Google和IBM再次合作建立了Google’的专利组合,来自美国专利商标局(USPTO)专利分配数据库的更新。除了实际涉及的专利之外,还有其他细节 ’还不知道。在过去的七月和九月,我写了最后几遍关于Google与IBM之间的大型专利交易的文章,在我发表文章几个小时后,Google最终就向许多大型媒体网站发送了电子邮件,例如《纽约时报》,《彭博新闻》, 《华尔街日报》以及其他一些披露收购的信息。我们’看看他们是否再做一次。

The last week of 2011, 谷歌 acquired 188 granted patents and 29 published pending patent applications from IBM, according to the USPTO assignment database, with an execution data on the assignment of the patents on December 28, 2011, in a deal that was officially recorded at the patent office on December 30, 2011.

这些专利涵盖了广泛的主题,例如演示软件,刀片服务器,数据缓存,服务器负载平衡,网络性能,视频会议,电子邮件管理和即时消息传递应用程序。许多专利还涵盖特定的互联网,电话和移动电话技术。

我从标题中删除了一些似乎涉及Web,电话和移动应用程序的专利,包括Java脚本浏览器窗口小部件专利,但是关于那些主题的专利申请可能更多,’具有非常描述性的标题。

谷歌 has been assigned a large number of patents from IBM in the past through a number of different transactions, many of which I wrote about here, such as:

USPTO数据库没有’t include the terms of the acquisition such as the financial details, and neither 谷歌 nor IBM have disclosed those types of details publicly for their previous patent transactions.

    只是好奇。您是如何得知这些电子邮件的?

    如果你不这样做也可以’不要透露。我明白。

  3. 嗨布雷特,

    谷歌 does seem pretty interested in letting its portfolio catch up to some of its biggest competitors. They’ve在他们的博客上发布了一些公告,说他们获得专利的原因之一是帮助阻止特别是专利巨魔针对他们提起的专利侵权案件。

    我希望他们继续获得尽可能多的东西。

  4. 嗨,马克,

    Thanks. I had a number of reporters 联系 me to try to find out more about how I learned about the patent acquisitions, and to ask some questions. A few of them also noted in their 文章s that 谷歌 had 联系ed them to confirm their purchase as well.

  5. 嗨,比尔,
    我们知道到目前为止Google拥有多少专利吗?看起来像一个很大的数字。

  6. 谷歌 is doing crazy job to acquire new patents and I can understand it. They haven’它创造了任何具有专利价值的东西,因此要在专利战争中保持竞争力,他们必须为此做点什么,否则他们将为拥有专利的其他公司花费数百万美元而不是数十亿美元。
    And as we all know 谷歌 like to copy and improve existing things, so working without the patents is like sitting on a powder keg.

  11. Interesting 文章. I wonder what direction 谷歌 will go and where they will be in a few years from now, until reading a different 文章 this morning i was thinking they would take over the world, but just read that Siri (Apple’s product) is going to be the beginning of the end of 谷歌. The thought is that you won’甚至不用电脑搜索任何东西,走动在家里,办公室等周围时,您只是在问电话或电视问题。

  12. That is so true, Bill. 谷歌 and IBM sure is racking up the patents in a frenzy. I think 谷歌 will continue rounding up patents as it tries to capture almost every tech perspective. And it sure doesn’t come as a surprise for us all that these involve mobile and internet technologies. 谷歌 seriously is going strong with their Android plans.

  14. // @米哈伊尔:我’m not sure whether 谷歌 is going to be a leader in Mobile or not but 1 thing is sure that 谷歌 guys are trying to be at the helm. For that, they are trying their best. The standard of technologies has been changed drastically in last 7-8 years and with these kinda tie-ups and collaborations we’ll have some rocking products 通过 companies like IBM , 谷歌 , Mac etc. Thanks Bill for sharing this patent deal with us. I didn’t know it.

  16. It’s a further effort 通过 IBM and 谷歌 to keep up with the Joneses. The more patents you carry, the more of a player you can be in this market. I have the Droid 通过 Motorola with its 谷歌 partnership. Great product but it’s still not up to par with Apple. Hopefully 谷歌’努力成为更大的参与者将获得回报。 IB<是做到这一点的好方法。

  19. 嗨,西尔万,

    The USPTO assignment database lists 5137 assignments of patents and pending patent applications from 谷歌, but that number doesn’t count:

    Patents owned 通过 谷歌 that haven’还没有分配给他们
    专利局仍未发布的专利和专利申请
    Patents that might be owned 通过 谷歌 that were assigned to them under different names, like those assigned to “Exaflop”(并且可能还会有其他人。
    目前可能尚未在美国以外的其他国家/地区申请的专利

    If the Motorola Mobility acquisition goes through, 谷歌 could potentially add another 17,000 + patents and pending and unpublished patent filings as well.

  20. 嗨,迈克,

    谷歌 has developed and filed a good number of their own patents, and while many of those cover search related topics, they also have many involving other topics as well. But they have been increasingly involved in fields outside of search, from self driving cars, to mobile phone operating systems, tablet operating systems, and more.

    Many of their competitors in those fields have been developing their own technologies and patenting them, and acquiring others for years, and some have a significant head start on on 谷歌, like Apple and Microsoft.

    谷歌’s Eric Schmidt said a few years ago when he was still CEO of 谷歌 that they won’在他们可以进入的领域’创新。我认为通常是这样,尽管他们开发的事物的某些方面可能在某些方面与现有技术重叠,但他们似乎确实对开发的事物采取独特的方法。那些领域“overlap”确实存在专利侵权诉讼的可能性,而从他人那里获取专利是试图帮助保护他们免受此类诉讼的一种方法。

  21. 嗨彼得

    我认为它’实际上,这是一个好兆头,表明我们看到了许多专利。这意味着人们正在尝试构建新事物,进行创造和创新,以保护他们正在构建的事物。什么是’好是当授予的坏专利确实没有’涵盖了新的,有用的和非显而易见的内容。什么’更糟的是,当公司仅出于从可能使用类似技术的公司那里收取钱的目的而抢购专利时,专利就从鼓励创新变成扼杀创新。

  22. 嗨桑托什

    谢谢您的客气话。

    在过去的几年中,IBM一直是世界上最多产的专利申请者之一,’拥有专利的ve涵盖了范围非常广泛的计算机技术,包括软件,硬件和数据库。他们’ve还为大量与技术相关的业务流程申请了专利。

    谷歌已在其数据中心,搜索引擎软件和网络系统背后建立了许多技术,而且看起来某些IBM专利可能涵盖了其中的某些类型。 谷歌一直在处理非常大的数据库,Google再次获得的IBM专利也涵盖了这些类型的主题。 谷歌一直在为移动和手持设备,电视机顶盒,服务器和数据中心开发计算机操作系统,’IBM的某些专利也可能涉及这些领域。

  23. 嗨,琥珀,

    我不’t think that Siri will be the end of 谷歌. It’的语音识别应用程序似乎运行良好,并且销售良好,但是苹果公​​司没有’t developed the kind of search technology that 谷歌 has, and 谷歌 has been working on its own voice recognition interface for a few years.

  24. 丹尼尔,您好

    It makes sense for 谷歌 to keep on acquiring technology patents for a wide range of technologies, to both protect them from potential patent infringement lawsuits and to use the technology in those patents when and where it make sense to do so. Apple may have had a headstart on 谷歌 when it comes to smart phones, but I think we all benefit from the competition between the two.

  25. 嗨,Hitesh,

    您’re welcome.

    谷歌 does seem to striving to be a leader in mobile. I was surprised myself when I checked the assignment database and saw this assignment of patents. I did a few searches on the Web to see if anyone else had run across the assignment, and didn’t see anything.

  26. 嗨,健太郎,

    谷歌 has been working on Near Field Communication for a while, and 谷歌’s 收购Zetawire 为他们带来了一项专利申请,其中描述了使用和管理NFC付款,广告和身份管理系统的一系列非常详细的过程。它’如果您想了解他们的系统多么完整,那么真的值得一读’设想,包括安全性问题,优惠券,电子钱包显示,名片和收据处理等等。

  27. 嗨,费利佩,

    I’m not sure that 谷歌 is trying to keep up with the Jones. I think they are trying to be leaders as much as they can, and on a good number of levels they are succeeding. As 谷歌’s Andy Rubin noted back on December 20th on 谷歌 Plus:

    那里 are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day

    这似乎很重要。

  28. “I’m not sure that 谷歌 is trying to keep up with the Jones”

    …是的,我同意Bill,如果有的话’重新尝试与琼斯区分开来’并试图成为“the Jones'”自己可以这么说!

  29. 天啊。超过5200项专利?你以为他们’是否只是购买间接竞争或竞争性扩张技术?当他们加入研究团队时可能会很有趣’重新试图弄清楚该做什么和该做什么’t…#7949935似乎很有趣,但我’不确定如何获得专利…

  30. 我认为它’s always very interesting to dig into the patent efforts of large companies like 谷歌 or Apple; it’s usually a great indication of the direction the company is hoping to take. 谷歌 is obviously still a giant, but they’毫无疑问,我们将竭尽全力在不断变化的互联网环境中保持相关性。我确实希望google +获得足够的动力,使其成为社交媒体领域的有效竞争对手。

  31. 嗨,托马斯,

    谷歌’在过去的两年中,其专利组合已大大增加。

    I suspect that when it comes to some of the acquisitions like the ones from IBM, 谷歌 might have been limited in its ability to pick and choose and had to buy bundles of patents to get some of the ones that they might have most wanted.

    选择和呈现网页的一部分 (美国专利号7949935) is pretty interesting as something that might best match up an advertisement with a specific section of a page. 谷歌’的基于上下文的广告通常处于基于网页的级别,因此,如果在与该文本最匹配的文本附近放置广告,可能意味着对该广告的点击次数增加’s definitely something that 谷歌 should consider looking into.

  32. 嗨,亚历克斯,

    In the cases of companies like 谷歌, Yahoo, Microsoft, and Apple, looking at patents provides a path to information about things they tend to be interested in that I’我不确定您是否真的可以其他任何方式发现。

    谷歌 Plus does have the potential to be a contender in the social media arena, but 谷歌’s integration of the service into its search results through both social search results and authorship markups/badges makes it more than just a social network site. That might be a positive that may help 谷歌 considerably.

  33. Bill, I strongly agree with you when you say that 谷歌 is doing everything they can to be innovative leaders. 我认为它’他们的创新真正地延伸到了多么惊人。即使他们不是’率先提出了增强现实眼镜等新技术,但我认为’这是他们创新的一个很好的例子:基本上可以做很多有趣的事情。哦,做的时候不要邪恶。

  34. Interesting 文章. I wonder what direction 谷歌 will go and where they will be in a few years from now, until reading a different 文章 this morning i was thinking they would take over the world, but just read that Siri (Apple’s product) is going to be the beginning of the end of 谷歌. The thought is that you won’甚至不用电脑搜索任何东西,走动在家里,办公室等周围时,您只是在问电话或电视问题。

  35. 可悲的是,这就是那个行业的状态。如果您想在移动设备上完全具有竞争力,那么您必须拥有大量专利才能在桌子上坐下来。我最近绘制了一张图表,说明谁在起诉移动设备业务中的谁,并且有太多条线路将一家公司连接到另一家公司,以至于几乎无法直观地看到发生的所有诉讼。尽管我是专利和知识产权的大力支持者,但在某些时候,您对小家伙们感到难过。一家拥有移动设备技术的小公司如何能够在不首先卖给大公司之一的情况下在这个领域竞争?

  36. 凯特,你好

    真的没有’t make too much sense for 谷歌 to try to compete in areas where they can’没有创新精神,他们在这方面确实做得很好。

    Creativity is often an exercise in taking something already existing, and transforming it in ways that are unexpected somehow. 那里 are things like Heads Up Displays (HUDs) that the military and the police and some industrial workers wear that provide some information through information presented in those displays, but the difference between the glasses 谷歌 showed in their video and those is like night and day. Fingers crossed on the “not be evil.”

  37. 嗨,丹,

    那里 were a few people predicting that Siri would be the end of computers and search and 谷歌. I’m not buying that. Siri still needs some kind of search engine and databse to power it. People will likely still perform searches via a display monitor that can show those search ads that 谷歌 makes their money with. 谷歌 may also start exploring some alternative business models 通过 the time they might have to worry about something like Siri.

  38. 嗨,布拉德,

    谢谢。

    似乎有必要向您提供专利支持。您制作的图表听起来有些吓人,但我’m envisioning it.

    我看到一些较小的公司专注于移动搜索等领域,’他们的家喻户晓,而且在躲藏在地下并申请了很多专利似乎做得很好。但是我同意你的看法,入境费用越来越高。但是我’ve also seen 谷歌 acquire a couple of patent portfolios from some small mobile technology companies that didn’完全出于一个或另一个原因。

  39. 这是一个疯狂的系统…公司购买大量专利(可能或可能不相关)只是为了与其他公司的诉讼作斗争。基本上允许他们实施各种专利侵权,因为他们将有火力对其他公司提起诉讼,以报复任何反对他们的人。

    公司法律制度肯定需要大修。

  40. 嗨Nate,

    我不’t know how many of the patent filings that 谷歌 purchased are relevant or not, but most of them do seem to cover things that 谷歌 is involved with. The many computer and network architecture and hardware patents do reflect that 谷歌 is one of the largest manufacturers of servers in the US, even though they may be using most of those for their own purposes.

    我们也真的是避风港’t been seeing 谷歌 going out of their way to try to sue others for patent infringement based upon the patents that they’ve been acquiring.

  41. 谷歌 isn’t suing people, they need the patents to protect themselves from other companies suing them. 谷歌 has copied a lot of things and moved into a lot of other corporation’s territories –因此他们需要这些专利(以及更多)来保护自己。
