CNet has a quick piece on the continuing Borders liquidation, covering the company that will be selling Border’s intellectual property. The IP includes Borders’s website, as well as a number of IPv4 addresses which have become increasingly valuable now that the hard limit on IPv4 numbers has been reached, It also includes the contractual agreements Borders had with Kobo, in which it owned a minority stake.

The liquidator is Streambank, the firm that is also handling the liquidation of Circuit City’s intellectual property (which, despite the chain having closed two years ago, still hasn’t been sold yet). Sadly from a TeleReader point of view, the article doesn’t go into any detail over what those contractual agreements with Kobo entail, and what benefit they would be to another company that bought them.
