The article reports on the launch of the Open Patent Alliance to spur customer demand for WiMAX in the U.S. by keeping device costs low. Patent pooling refers to a licensing arrangement agreed to by patent holders whereby companies that make products pay a common price for all or most of the essential patents involved in the creation of products. WiChorus chief executive Renan Jalil said the open mindset is encouraging news for smaller device makers because it means that companies are not going to overprotect their turf using just patents.
