RPX Corp. acquires patents from Droplets

RPX Corporation announces that it has acquired sub-license rights to patents related to Web-based application delivery from internet application software Droplets. This transaction eliminates RPX clients' exposure to a broad-based litigation campaign. Four RPX clients have been dismissed from the litigation with three remaining clients in the process of being dismissed. In the transaction, which closed in December, RPX also acquired option rights to grant sublicenses under the Droplets patents to many prospective clients.
