Internet search pioneer Lycos puts patents up for sale

Today, the online portal put up for sale a trove of patents covering search engines, online ads, and online games. The move comes as Lycos says it plans to release a new series of products that incorporate Internet-connected hardware, often called the “Internet of things.”

In a news release, Lycos said it was hoping to sell or license the patents “in an effort to foster a collaborative and mutually beneficial relationship with partners and industries.”
