    Going Once… Xerox to Auction 239 Great Ideas

    ICAP Patent Brokerage and Xerox to host a unique sealed-bid patent auction

    Norwalk, Conn (PRWEB) June 16, 2014Xerox  has engaged intellectual property broker ICAP Patent Brokerage to auction 239 U.S. patents across 26 technological fields. Bidding will take place between July 24th and July 29th. The patents represent projects from Xerox's five global research centers, including PARC, a Xerox Company.

    Ranked as one of the world's top innovators, Xerox and its subsidiaries are annually awarded more than 1,000 U.S. patents across a broad spectrum of the services, software, and hardware disciplines and in the physical and life sciences.

    "Our scientists and engineers are constantly pushing the boundaries of the unknown, adding to Xerox's more than 12,000 active U.S. patents,” said Sophie Vandebroek, Xerox chief technology officer and president of the Xerox Innovation Group. “It is vital that we seek the best return on our innovation investments. We do that not only by using intellectual property to expand our services and product offerings, but also by licensing our patents and where appropriate, selling them."

    “This is one of the first sales of this type to feature a single corporation in a sealed bid auction,” said Doug Rhoten, Chairman of ICAP Patent Brokerage. “After thorough analysis, Xerox and ICAP Patent Brokerage will be presenting a series of patent portfolios, concentrated on heavily-cited and technologically-relevant patents, to the market for the full spectrum of buyers.”
