DRM Patent Holders Join Forces

Companies holding patents for different components of the Digital Radio Mondiale Technology are establishing a way to pool their patents to make it easier for manufacturers to license the technology and bring DRM products to market. Via Licensing Corporation is crafting a portfolio containing patents essential to the DRM audio coding and modulation/demodulation technologies.
Companies working with Via Licensing include AT&T, Coding Technologies, Dolby Laboratories, France Telecom, Fraunhofer IIS, NEC, Philips Electronics, Robert Bosch, Sony, T-Systems International, Thales and Voice Age.
The patent licensing fees for DRM are on the Via Licensing Website at The group hopes to begin licensing during the third quarter of this year.
