Latest Ocean Tomo auction figures released

Yesterday Ocean Tomo announced the results of its 30 October Fall 2008 Live IP Auction. Cumulative sales, including buyer’s premium, totalled $12,842,500. Of particular note are the following:

* 11 NASA-owned patent assets relating to the Hilbert-Huang transform (HHT) signal processing technology fetched $55,000 plus an ongoing royalty stream.

* Carlson Wireless Technologies secured more than US$1 million from the aggregated sales of two lots.
The linked document also includes a lot-by-lot chart that shows how well the various intellectual properties did. The lowest lots were knocked down for US$11,000.
