Deal with Zonet

Wi-LAN Inc. signs California’s Zonet USA Corp. to a six-year licensing deal for its Wi-Fi patents. The Ottawa-based IP licensing WiLan.jpgfirm says the deal includes Zonet, a designer and manufacturer of computer peripherals for the network and connectivity industry, signing a running royalty agreement, as well as paying for past use of the technology. “Zonet is the latest of many companies that have negotiated licence agreements for our essential technology,” says CEO Jim Skippen, who notes that Wi-LAN is currently discussing potential licensing deals with 40 prospective clients. “In just 20 months our licensing program has secured 45 licence agreements. In my view this performance is an order of magnitude better than what I view as industry comparables.”
