According to this report,  Solar company SunPower has successfully used one of its patents to force SunLink to take a licence for its patented light weight rooftop mounting system.

Facing court action, SunLink acknowledged infringement and presumably settled to the financial and commercial advantage of SunPower.

SunPower presumably now has an extra revenue stream through their patents and license.  Now, profits from products produced and sold by SunLink may very well flow through to SunPower.

Its very likely that the use of patents by the solar industry will increase with its maturity.
