MPEG LA is the world’s leading packager and provider of one-stop licenses for standards and other technology platforms. We developed the pool market space. Our “many-to-many licensing model” has revolutionized the way patent holders, developers and users think about the intellectual property market creating reasonable access and profitable opportunities for everyone.
By assisting users with implementation of their technology choices, MPEG LA offers licensing solutions that provide access to fundamental intellectual property, freedom to operate, reduced litigation risk and predictability in the business planning process. In turn, this enables inventors, research institutions and other technology owners to monetize and speed market adoption of their assets to a worldwide market while substantially reducing the cost of licensing.
MPEG LA licensing programs consisting of thousands of patents owned by hundreds of patent holders in nearly 100 countries with over 7,200 licensees have helped produce some of the most widely used standards in consumer electronics history, and are expanding access to other technology areas.
