Intel’s Deal With Ryarc Upsets The Industry

“Has Intel Been Buying Ryarc IP?” we wrote in a short post back in October 2012 and it seems we were probably correct.

Latest rumour is actually more of a fact (or series of facts)…

  • the Intel-Ryarc partnership is a done deal
  • it is indeed an IP acquisition, where the software has been licensed to Intel
  • Ryarc remains as a standalone company and is free to do what they want with their CMS, whilst Intel gets access to the source code and is also free to do what they want with the IP

    […] line of reasoning probably won’t work. If Intel is bringing something to market based upon their unconfirmed IP deal with Ryarc, then we cannot expect it to be innovative, new or differentiated. There are hundreds of […]
