About LMI

License Management International (LMI) was founded in 2000 in response to a critical need from the world's leading technology companies and other entities for unbiased, thorough administrative management for licensing their intellectual property (IP), trade secrets and other licensable tangible items.

These entities, while interested in revenue generation and market expansion associated with sharing IP, did not want to dedicate the time, personnel and resources necessary to build and sustain a successful licensing practice. Also, the companies wanted to ensure that all licensees - including fierce competitors - were treated in a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory manner.

LMI has built a successful business by providing the administrative and cryptographic value generation services associated with sharing IP for its clients. With a client portfolio of prominent corporations and the world leading technology companies they represent, LMI is growing in renown as the one-stop-shop for license administrative management.

A key component of the licensing process is providing cryptographic values generation services to clients. LMI has experience in providing a secure facility for the generation of cryptographic values. LMI's highly trained technical staff has extensive experience with a range of technologies, giving LMI's clients confidence in the accuracy and reliability of cryptographic value generation.
