When Apple and the U.S. enter into a deal to sell its patents, Canada is on the hook for billions of dollars
- by admin
Apple and Google are entering into a landmark patent-sharing deal in which the tech giants will supply technology to Canadian companies.
Apple is buying U.K.-based software company Aris, which makes software for the U, S. and E.U., for $2.4 billion.
The U.N. agency for human rights said in a statement that the deal could help end a decades-long campaign to stop Apple from using technology from third-party companies in its products.
The move comes just weeks after Canada agreed to a $1.9 billion deal with Google to sell patents it developed in the U in exchange for the ability to buy Canadian software.
Apple and Google have long fought for a free and open internet, and have accused each other of stealing their patents.
Canada’s government has said it hopes the deal will help improve its own patent system and help Canada “lead the world in innovation and innovation access.”
The deal will also see Apple and Aris work together on an alternative patent system for future products.
