Microsoft and Casio reach patent licensing agreement

Microsoft announced today that it’s reached a broad, multiyear patent cross-licensing agreement with Casio providing patent coverage for Casio’s use of Linux in some of its devices.

Casio utilizes a variety of Microsoft software for its products, including its industrial handheld terminals and business information systems, Microsoft said in its news release.

The details of the licensing agreement are confidential but Microsoft is being compensated by Casio, according to the release.

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced patent licensing agreements with Acer and ViewSonic over smartphones and/or tablets that run on the Android platform. Microsoft contends that it has patents on some of the technologies found in Android features.
