Siemens Nixdorf has responded to reports that a patent it holds on power management on monitors is holding up a VESA standard.
(See earlier report, below).
But the company has still to decide which of the three options it has. The company released a statement commenting on the issues regarding the DPMS patent owned by Siemens Nixdorf.
The company said: "The letter advises members that the DPMS standard will be withdrawn by VESA if SNI does not give a formal written statement of which option of VESA's policy 109 it is taking with regard to the patent."
"As a VESA member, SNI has three options regarding the patent. These are: i) to allow totally free use of the patent; ii) to restrict free licence of the patent to applicants desiring to utilise the licence for the purpose of implementing the standard; iii) to offer a licence for the use of the patent in return for reasonable licencing fees or royalties (terms and conditions)."
"SNI is currently considering option iii and is consulting with VESA on this."
