Patents: Who Wants Them and Why They Matter

June 27, 2011

Just yesterday, Google announced plans to purchase the mobile division of Motorola for $12.5 billion. In an official statement from Google CEO Larry Page, he points out that "our acquisition of Motorola will increase competition by strengthening Google's patent portfolio, which will enable us to better protect Android from anti-competitive threats from Microsoft, Apple and other companies."

Suffice it to say, this is big news from an even bigger company with far-reaching implications. Yet beyond the major players and major buzz it has created for the tech industry, at the heart of the matter lays an important and longstanding factor: patents.

As Google's statement highlights, a company's patent portfolio is not only a representation of its legally-earned intellectual proprietary rights, it's a point of pride that speaks to the inventiveness and innovation of a company's best minds. As such, the quality of a company's patent portfolio can go a long way towards measuring that company's value, not only in and of itself, but to the industry it serves.
