    Nvidia/Intel Cross Licensing Agreement Length


    "In the first quarter of 2011, we entered into a long-term patent cross-license agreement with NVIDIA. Under the agreement, we received a license to all of NVIDIA’s patents with a capture period that runs through March 2017 while NVIDIA products are licensed under our patents with the same capture period, subject to exclusions for x86 products, certain chipsets, and certain flash memory technology products.

      here's the specific text I was referring to in my earlier reply -- paragraph 4.1:

      "4.1. Term. This Agreement and the rights and licenses granted hereunder shall become
      effective on the Effective Date, and shall continue in effect until the expiration of the
      last patent licensed hereunder to expire unless such rights and licenses are sooner
      terminated by a Party pursuant to Section 4.2. Except as expressly set forth in
      Sections 4.2(a) or 4.2(b), neither this Agreement nor any of the rights or licenses
      granted herein may be terminated for any reason."

      The full text is available from Intel's website and discoverable if you Google "intel nvidia agreement pdf"

      but doesn't the agreement also stipulate that the intel has a license to NVDA IP until each patent expires? I was/am confused by the capture period vs. the verbiage about the license being effective until patent expiration.
