MCLEAN, Va., July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kajeet®, an industry leader providing software and hardware solutions that deliver safe and reliable Internet connectivity to students, enterprises and iOT solution providers, is proud to announce the success of a patent licensing strategy aimed at making Kajeet technology available as widely as possible.
Founded in 2003, Kajeet helps schools, districts and libraries extend digital access to students and patrons through its SmartSpot, SmartBus and LTE Chromebook solutions, while protecting children from inappropriate and distracting online content, and enabling schools and families to keep children focused and safe from the many potential dangers associated with unconstrained access to online content. During this time of COVID-19 these innovations are proving to be highly desirable as students and employees study and work from home.
To achieve this, the founders and engineers at Kajeet have developed a patent portfolio of 36 issued U.S. patents and other pending applications. In 2017 Kajeet embarked on a patent licensing strategy to level the competitive marketplace and help make its innovations available to anyone that needs them. To date, the licenses under the program have been granted to eight companies, including Smith Micro and CUJO.
In some cases, licensing discussions are not possible and Kajeet, to be fair to its existing licensees and protect its intellectual property, has initiated litigation against some industry participants. Currently Kajeet is in litigation with JAMF Software in the Western District of Texas, Lightspeed Software in the Western District of Texas, and Gryphon in the District of Delaware.
"It is Kajeet's desire to resolve all litigation conflicts in a fair and reasonable manner," said Daniel J. W. Neal, CEO and Founder of Kajeet, and a named inventor on most of the patents in the Kajeet portfolio. "We have spent significant time and resources for more than 15 years underpinning and protecting our critical inventions. Only by protecting these inventions can we continue to make them available to those who need them and provide value to our growing licensing business and current licensees."
The 36 U.S. patents issued to Kajeet cover innovations in four general areas: (1) policy control for mobile/wireless devices; (2) electronic wallets for managing pre-paid and plan-limited mobile devices and shared mobile data plans; (3) selective access control for mobile devices; and (4) sponsored connectivity services for mobile devices.
Kajeet is being advised by Patent Monetization Inc. and its legal representative in patent licensing matters is the law firm Friedman Suder & Cooke.
