Nokia signs licensing deal with Intertrust

Intertrust Technologies announced that it has entered into a patent licensing agreement with Nokia.

A Wireless News report also said the license grants Nokia access to Intertrust's broad portfolio of inventions in the areas of digital rights management (DRM) and trusted computing.

Licensed technologies covered under the agreement include those relating to the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), Marlin DRM specifications, and various trusted distributed mobile computing standards.

Intertrust is a founding member of several initiatives promoting open standards in the DRM area including the Marlin Developer Community and the Marlin Trust Management Organization.

'This license provides Nokia with the design freedom to deliver many advanced features in mobile computing,' said Matti Kauppi, vice president of Intellectual Property Rights, Nokia. 'We have previously worked with Intertrust and are pleased that our thinking regarding the development of DRM technology has once again come closer together.'
