Microsoft buys 800 patents from AOL covering search, ads, more
Yes, it's another huge sale of patents to an already huge IP behemoth. Microsoft is buying 800 of AOL's 1100 or so patents for a little over $1 billion, while also taking up a license for the remainder 300 AOL patents. In addition, Microsoft is buying all the patents owned by AOL subsidiary Netscape.
And Netscape's patents too? My gut tells me this is bad.. - Scott
