Over 230 patents and 546 patent assets of Xerox Corporation Limited are on sale for this September 11th- 16th. ICAP Patent Brokerage has been hired to handle the auction. The estimation value ranges from $1 to $10 million.
Xerox Corporation Ltd was founded in 1906 as The Haloid Photographic Company which originally manufactured photographic paper and equipment. In 1938 Chester Carlson invented a process for printing images using an electrically charged drum and dry powder “toner.” With a motto of innovation in my mind, the company got more than 50 thousand patents worldwide; it currently holds more than 12,000 active U.S. patents and they invest $1.4 billion in research and development every year.
The 239 patents list covers categories such as:
1. Web & search,
2. Printers & print systems,
3. Audio communications,
4. Connectivity and others
We look forward and wish both Xerox and ICAP to get the best return on the company’s innovation investments.
