OLPC & Pixel Qi announce cross-license deal
crossposted from The Digital Reader
From the press release:
The One Laptop per Child Foundation (OLPC), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help provide every child in the world access to a modern education, and Pixel Qi Corporation, an innovator in high-performance, low-power displays, have signed a permanent and royalty-free cross-licensing agreement that will allow both organizations to deliver products incorporating the world’s most advanced screen technology.
As a result of the agreement, OLPC receives full license to all Pixel Qi “3qi” screen technology, including 70+ patents in process and all current and future IP developed by Pixel Qi for multi-mode screens. Pixel Qi is leading the design of new screens for OLPC’s next-generation XO laptops. The agreement also calls for Pixel Qi to receive full license to the dual-mode (indoor and outdoor) display technology used in the XO.

Does that mean we have to contact OLPC to get the 10" 3qi screen to replace our laptop screen? oh, I wish not....

Actually, the biggest reason is probably that it clears up any potential patent issues since one of the main developers at pixelqi used to work for olpc.
