A New Guest At The Nortel Patent Party?
The queue to bid in the auction for Nortel’s collection of patents grows longer by the day. Earlier this month we learned that Research In Motion and patent risk solutions provider RPX were considering participating in the auction. Today comes word of a new potential bidder: Ericsson AB. People familiar with the company’s plans tell Bloomberg that it’s mulling an offer for Nortel’s IP, perhaps in concert with Google, Microsoft or Intel.
