IBM Patent Thousand Purchased Google

Google re-purchase more than 1,000 patents from IBM to build and maintain an IP portfolio of Android operating system from competitors' lawsuits.

According to the SEO of the blog SEA, the patent covers mobile technologies, user authentication, file management system, circuit board design and technology related to desktop and server PCs. Patents can be viewed online at the Institute of the U.S. Trademark and Patent.

Google and IBM did not disclose how much money is spent on those patents, but the transaction is not the first time, two companies that do business with IP technology.

In July, Google has bought more than 1,000 other patents from IBM, after failing to buy about 6,000 mobile patents from bankrupt Nortel Networks company. Nortel patent was bought by Google's competitors, including Apple, Microsoft and Research In Motion (RIM) worth $ 4.5 billion.

Last month, Google agreed to buy Motorola Mobility worth $ 12.5 billion as Google's effort to become a giant technology company hardware and pocketed thousands of Motorola patents.

Currently Google faces patent lawsuit with Oracle because of Google's Android operating system using the Java programming language. In the last month, Google also 'attack each other' with Microsoft via Twitter and in blog posts.

U.S. federal agencies must first approve the purchase of Motorola by Google. Approval is required to prevent Google from Motorola could claim patent rights.
