CalAmp Licenses Patents
Oxnard-based CalAmp, a developer of wireless products and hardware, said Wednesday that it has entered into a patent license agreement with Trackn, a supplier of location-based services, for two of its patents. According to CalAmp, Trackn, which runs a service called Enfotrace, will license its patents covering vehicle location systems for locating and repossessing vehicles. The patent licensing deal follows a patent infringement suit filed by CalAmp against Trackn. Financial details of the patent licensing deal were not disclosed. The lawsuit was around CalAmp's U.S. Patent Nos. 6,025,774 and 6,249,217 B1. CalAmp has also previously inked license agreements with DriveOK Inc., SKYWATCH GPS and Procon, Inc., all of whom were named in previous patent litigation.
