Overview

 

Via Licensing’s W-CDMA patent licensing program offers a single license (the Joint License Agreement or JLA) to the Licensors’ patents that are essential for the use of the 3GPP W-CDMA standard in user devices.  The W-CDMA Licensors consist of a seminal group of companies that helped pave the way for the development, implementation and near ubiquitous adoption of the 3G cellular standard. The W-CDMA JLA is the most efficient and cost controlled way for manufacturers and distributors of products implementing the W-CDMA standard to license patents that are essential to the use of the standard from the Licensors.  The program offers a joint patent license under fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms and is a hallmark of licensing transparency, efficiency and cost effectiveness, promoting continued growth and innovation in the wireless industry.
