Access Advance further announced that Alibaba, Kuaishou, ByteDance, and Tencent have joined the VVC Advance Patent Pool as Licensees.
Also announced was the reinstatement and extension of the bonus patent point incentive program for any VVC standard essential patent (SEP) patent owner that joins on or before December 31, 2023.

According to Pete Moller, CEO of Access Advance, “We are extremely pleased to welcome these important new Licensors and Licensees to our VVC program. Each is an important company that can help drive adoption of VVC, with all the benefits this new video technology brings to consumers. We are also pleased that our VVC Licensors have given us the opportunity to extend the bonus patent point incentive through year-end. The incentive lasts for the life of the patents and is transferable with the patents. The extra revenue this incentive represents over the life of a patent will be significant. We hope that other patent owners will take advantage of this opportunity.”
