The MPEG LA, LLC technology licensing group announced that it has made progress in working with interested parties to create a joint patent pool license for the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard for mobile telecommunications.

MPEG LA is inviting any party with patents essential to the LTE standard to submit them by June 19, 2009, for evaluation. Begun last year, MPEG LA’s efforts so far have focused on educating the market. “Next generation wireless technology, with its multifunctional capabilities, begs for a patent pool licensing alternative,” Larry Horn, MPEG LA president and CEO, said in a statement.
