Fuze Announces Partnerships with Dropbox, Box and Okta

Fuze announced partnerships with Dropbox, Box and Okta that further align Fuze to the way people get work done. Either before or during a Fuze meeting, users can now simply add files from their Dropbox or Box accounts using their phones, tablets or desktops, improving the ability to collaborate from anywhere. Beyond screen sharing, Fuze allows remote workers and teams to share and annotate content in high definition (HD) and supports a range of content types including full-motion videos, animated presentations, images, documents, etc. Fuze content sharing and annotation is widely used among leading creative agencies, film studios, gaming companies, schools and industrial design teams, and is a common use case for enterprise marketing, sales and training departments. Customers include Ogilvy, Groupon, Meta Design, CBS Interactive, Connery Consulting, Saint Louis University, Reward Gateway and hundreds of others. Fuze's integration with Okta's identity management platform enables enterprises to quickly and securely deploy Fuze across specific teams or the entire organization. As a part of the Okta Application Network, a network of thousands of organizations and applications and millions of people, Fuze can now centrally manage and maintain a single identity profile for any user across any combination of on-premises or cloud-based systems. The integration enables IT to securely manage all those profiles so users can access their work quickly and easily from anywhere. For Fuze customers, the Okta integration supports secure single sign on, centralized user provisioning and soon, directory integration. This allows companies to personalize employee Fuze accounts with a profile photo, title, phone numbers for the Fuze 'Call Me' feature.

Asana, Canon Inc., Dropbox, Google, Newegg and SAP Announce Formation of Cooperative Patent-Licensing Agreement

Asana, Canon Inc., Dropbox, Google, Newegg and SAP announced the formation of the License on Transfer (LOT) Network, a cooperative patent-licensing agreement that will cut down on patent troll litigation and the growing practice of patent privateering. The LOT agreement is a new kind of royalty-free cross-license meant to address these growing systemic problems. Member companies receive a license when the patents are transferred out of the LOT group. That means that companies retain their right to enforce a patent so long as they retain ownership of it. However, as soon as it is sold, a license to the other members becomes effective, protecting them from attacks by the troll to which the patent was sold. The agreement includes several other provisions that preserve a patent portfolio's value, including carve-outs for certain M&A transactions and change of control. The initial members of the LOT Network range from early-stage startups to established technology companies. Together they own almost 300,000 patent assets, generate more than $117 billion in revenue and employ more than 310,000 people.
