Don’t Be Evil Only If We Get A 2.25% Cut

February 9, 2012 Comments off

On royalties, Google explicitly endorses and reinforces Motorola’s 2.25% position known from its disputes with Apple and Microsoft, including the idea of charging vendors based on the “net selling price of the relevant end product” even if patents are implemented in only one hardware or software component. In other words, if a BMW car implements H.264 or UMTS, they will want 2.25% of the price of the car, even if it means a per-unit royalty in the thousands of euros
