Telecommunication Systems (TSYS) Sells Navigation Patents To South Korea's IP Cube Partners

 December 27, 2012 07:45 AM

(By Balachander) TeleCommunication Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: TSYS) said it has sold two of its U.S. patents to IP Cube Partners of South Korea for a multi-seven-figure payment.

The patents involve the use of a stylus for navigating a map application on a hand-held device, such as a personal digital assistant or smartphone, the Annapolis, Maryland-based company said.

TeleCommunication said the sale of these two patents represents a next step in its program of monetizing its growing IP (intellectual property) portfolio.

"TCS' IP monetization efforts are not limited to patent sales – we are also pursuing direct licensing, represented licensing/enforcement and direct enforcement of our intellectual property as best suited to the situations," said TCS CEO Maurice Tose.
