CARLSBAD, Calif. --, January 04, 2008
-- Patriot Scientific Corporation (OTCBB:PTSC) announced today that Humax Corporation, Ltd. has purchased a Moore Microprocessor Patent(TM) (MMP) Portfolio license. Humax manufactures and distributes a broad range of digital set top box, LCD television and satellite radio products.
"In just the first week of 2008, we're proud to welcome Humax to the long and distinguished roster of MMP licensees," said Jim Turley, president and CEO of Patriot Scientific. "The company's products are ubiquitous and user-friendly, and I like to think that our technology played a part in that success."
"The MMP Portfolio Licensing Program continues its rapid growth, with Humax being the tenth new licensee in just the past month," said Rick Schutte, vice president of Intellectual Property for Alliacense, Patriot's exclusive licensing partner. "Licensing activity has increased dramatically in the past month, most likely due to the successful Markman ruling and its settlement with the remaining defendants in the MMP patent infringement case in Texas."
