Patriot Scientific Corp. confirmed that Seiko Epson Corp. has agreed to purchase, pending approval by its board of directors, a Moore Microprocessor Patent (MMP) portfolio license. Terms of the Seiko Epson agreement to purchase a license were not disclosed.

In addition to its printer and LCD businesses, Seiko Epson dabbles in precision instruments such as clocks for applications ranging from watches to computers and wireless communications devices.

Patriot Scientific and The TPL Group are co-owners of the MMP portfolio, which Alliacense, a TPL Group enterprise, exclusively manages. The MMP portfolio patents, filed in the 1980s, cover techniques ranging from DVD players, cellphones and portable music players, to communications infrastructure, medical equipment and automobiles.

According to David Pohl, Patriot Scientific chairman and CEO, the licensing team produced six licensing agreements in as many months.
