“Since our news release for the patent auction in November, numerous companies have expressed enthusiastic interest in the patent portfolios, and have asked enough time to review them. So we have decided an extension of bid deadline for both auctions given market interest,” said Seoul Semiconductor’s founder Chung Hoon Lee and SETi’s chief executive officer Chae Hon Kim.

The auction process is being handled by GoodIP, the digital licensing platform that helps tech companies and research centers identify licensing partners for their intellectual property.
