HP’s Love-Hate Patent Dance
“Hewlett-Packard, in some ways, illustrates both sides of the debate over intellectual property. The company has increasingly been forced to deflect claims from companies and individuals who assert that HP owes them royalties.
“But HP, like Microsoft and IBM, is also extracting more from its own patents and intellectual property. The company created a group in January 2003 to better market and defend its intellectual property.”
