AudioFAX Announces Licensing of Fax Technology to Leader in Unified Communications Industry
AudioFAX IP LLC announced that it has entered into an agreement with Captaris, a provider of unified communications and mobile business solutions, for the use of AudioFAX's patented fax technology. The agreement signed by the two companies allows Captaris to license and use fax technology patented by AudioFAX.The AudioFAX patents cover a broad range of inventions that incorporate fax store-and-forward technologies.
Many of these are used daily by millions and include products and services such as fax mail, fax broadcasting, and "real-time" fax over the Internet.
AudioFAX IP LLC was established to license and administrate its telecommunications patents. The company was created as a spin-off from AudioFAX, Inc., an Atlanta-based company founded in 1987, which is credited with pioneering many of the technologies now used in the enhanced fax industry. AudioFAX initiated a patent licensing program in early 1997 with the help of intellectual property consulting firm InteCap and the law firms of Powell, Goldstein, Frazer & Murphy LLP (AudioFAX licensing and litigation counsel) and Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice (AudioFAX's patent counsel).
