JGR Acquisition, Inc. to acquire Commerce One patents for $15.5 million
JGR Acquisitions topped the bidding for the 39 patents [eWeek: 7 issued patents/32 patent applications] at $15.5 million. If JGR is unable to close the deal, Brissac Electronic Holdings can buy the patents for $14.9 million. ThinkFire Services was also one of the bidders.
As noted in an earlier post, how the licensing and/or litigation of these Commerce One patents plays out in the post-auction situation has relevance to discussions of rational ignorance or optimal ignorance at the USPTO.
