Today, Maya-Systems announced that it sold a portion of its patents relating to axis-based user interface technology to Apple in 3Q12. The acquisition included 18 patent properties of Maya-Systems.

Maya-Systems' technology offers an intuitive way to display any virtual content in a superior manner. This transaction attests that Maya-Systems axis-based user interface is ahead of the growing demand for axis-based user interfaces.

"We dealt with a significant number of sophisticated buyers," noted Mathieu Audet, founder of Maya-Systems and patent agent. "We are pleased to have secured the transaction with Apple." "Our patents have been analyzed thoroughly by many potential buyers. We are confident that they are strong assets."

Maya-Systems Inc. was founded in 2002 and is based in Montreal, Canada. It specializes in developing advanced content management technologies. One of its products called 'i am organized' is described as an "integrated, intuitive and interactive environment for organizing, retrieving, seeing and sharing files."

IamOrganized’s uniquely distinctive, patented feature is its axes-based interface. Intuitive and elegant, axes herald a new era in content management. They show and manage content more meaningfully than ever. Unlike folder trees based on file location, axes group files by subject (any attribute, really) and display them along a timeline. Scroll an axis to view more files. Zoom in. Zoom out. Navigate swiftly between projects by displaying several axes on your screen. Attribute-based, orderly and relational, axes give users a meaningful and integrated view of their files.
