TechRadium In Patent Deal With Blackboard

Sugar Land-based TechRadium, which provides emergency notification services, announced Tuesday that it has reached a deal with Blackboard to cross license the firm's patents and patent applications. Financial details of the cross licensing agreement were not disclosed. The firm said the deal would allow each company to continue to provide mass notification technology and services to clients. TechRadium had sued Blackboard last year over its patents, after Blackboard acquired emergency notification service provider NTI Group. TechRadium just filed a similar patent infringement lawsuit against micro-blogging site Twitter last week.
