One-Blue Launches Licensing Program for Blu-ray Disc Products

(New York, USA – August 3, 2011) One-Blue, LLC announced it has officially launched its licensing program for Blu-ray Disc™ products.

One-Blue, an independent licensing company, has been established for the purpose of administering a licensing program for patents essential to Blu-ray Disc™ products. For hardware and software products, the license covers Blu-ray Disc™, DVD and CD essential patents; for disc products, the license covers Blu-ray Disc™ essential patents.

With the creation of One-Blue, the participating companies have founded an innovative patent pool for Blu-ray Disc™ products that levels the playing field, reduces costs, and fosters fair use of the patent system in the entire optical disc sector.

An important goal of the One-Blue product licensing program is the creation of a level playing field for all participants in the Blu-ray Disc™ product market. To this end the One-Blue licensing program will introduce a per-batch licensing system for high volume Blu-ray Disc™ products  and labels to be put  on the outer boxes of Blu-ray Disc™ products, which will enable retailers and other players in the value chain to determine readily which products are licensed under this program.  One-Blue expects that after a short initial period all boxes of relevant Blu-ray Disc ™ products will be provided with labels.

Since issuing its call for Blu-ray Disc™ product patents in October 2009, One-Blue has been working diligently with potential licensors to ensure wide-spread adoption of its licensing program. For the past few months, One-Blue has acquired the necessary regulatory and governmental approvals for the establishment of One-Blue, LLC as the joint licensing agent of its licensors.

Any holder of patents essential to optical formats used in Blu-ray Disc™ products is invited to submit patents for evaluation and join the licensing program as a new licensor.
More information about the One-Blue licensing program and related royalty rates can be found on www.one-blue.com.

Any company interested in obtaining licenses for one or more Blu-ray Disc™ products under the One-Blue product licensing program is requested to contact One-Blue at the e-mail address listed below.
