Friday Factoid: Google Announces Patent Purchase Program

Google recently announced plans to conduct a temporary patent purchase program under which owners of U.S. patents could list patents for sale on an online portal and the corresponding offer price for such patents, and Google could select the patents it wanted to purchase and finalize the purchase “in short order.” This program was scheduled to run for two weeks in May 2015.
