Yahoo Offering More Than 3,000 Patents Amid Strategic Reviews

  • Intellectual property covers search, ads, cloud technology
  • Company to keep more than 1,000 patents for its core business

Yahoo! Inc. is exploring the sale of more than 3,000 patents as part of an effort begun earlier this year to look into ways to monetize its intellectual property.

The company has extended efforts on the divestiture of patents and pending patents held by its Excalibur LLC unit that include search, advertising and cloud-based technology, the company said in an e-mailed statement. There is no reserve price or guidance.
