Its important to understand that Denso Corporation (JAPAN) started the QR CODE however its patent was related to  first designed for the automotive industry in Japan.(Originally designed for industrial uses),  so the patents owned my NEOM  Process / marketing / etc , so as far as the use of the QR codes and revenues today come from marketing of which all patents are owned by Neomedia  , scaning of products..

According to this patent Granted August 12, 2014  (PLAIN ENGLISH)

We claim: 

1. A method of a user computing device comprising a scanner and a computer accessing one of a plurality of remote information computers available for communication over a network, comprising: scanning a bar code symbol affixed to an article of commerce, the bar code symbol encoded with an index readable by the user computing device; transmitting the index by the user computing device to a remote server computer over the network for the remote server computer to access with the index a database comprising a plurality of records comprising predetermined relationships that link an index to a pointer which identifies a remote information computer on the network, extract a pointer from the database as a function of the index, and return the pointer to the user computing device over the network; and the user computing device receiving the pointer and then using the pointer to establish communication directly via the network with the remote information computer identified by the pointer. 

KEY IS THAT commerce == whole system of an economy (all activities, functions and institutions involved in transferring goods from producers to consumers) 

What constitutes infringement of a patent? 
To decide whether an inventor is violating (infringing) a patent, it is necessary to carefully examine the patent's "claims." (Claims are terse statements of the scope of the invention, and most patents contain more than one of them.) The elements of each claim must be compared with the elements of the accused infringer's invention (usually a device or process). 
If the elements of a patent claim match the elements of the device or process (called "reading on" or "teaching" the device or process), an infringement has occurred. 
Even if the claims don't literally match the elements of the infringing device, it is possible that a court would find an infringement by applying what's known as the "doctrine of equivalents"; that is, the patented invention and the allegedly infringing device or process are sufficiently equivalent in what they do and how they do it to warrant a finding of infringement

Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) licensed the NeoMedia technology for the life of the patents, until 2023 or 2025 for the core patents, Marriott said. It has a similar license arrangement with San Jose, Calif.-based eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY), and with another large customer NeoMedia cannot disclose.

Among the over 2,000 people who took part in the contest, about half said that they actively scanned package QRcodes, while 36 percent had never scanned a barcode before, and 14 were uncertain. This shows that consumers are quite willing to scan and that the barcodes present a considerable mobile marketing opportunity.

Note: NeoMedia sues ScanBuy for Patent Infringement: At time of the lawsuit and of course preceeding it, ScanBuy had no patents, not even patent applications, only copyrights. Subsequent to being sued for patent infringement, ScanBuy filed for patents; this post contains current status of these applications as of May 24, 2006 (of 10 applications, so far 5 have been denied or are pending denial; other 5 still in review.) However, in any case, these applications are WAY after the time frame of infringement, and do not superceed NeoMedia already granted patents which have so far resulted in licensing or settlements by other companies:

Verizon Says Passwords Suck, QR Codes Offer Better Way

08 September 2014

Epson has launched a portable business projector with QR code connectivity, it has been designed to make collaboration and thesharing of content from smart devices almost instant.

Chris Goff, product manager, Epson UK, says: "The iProjection QR code connection makes it easy for anyone with a smartphone or tablet to link to theEB-W28. Once the Epson iProjection app has been downloaded to a smart device,it's just a matter of scanning a QR code that's projected by the EB-W28."


QR Code Detective: Ultimate do’s and don’ts of marketing with 2D barcodes

Brands and marketers need to discover the yeses and the no-nos of connecting with consumers over smartphones.

A growing number of highly successful campaigns that have incorporated a QR code have eliminated any doubt that it is possible to use these barcodes for tremendous achievements, but at the same time, there is a right way and a wrong way to getting the most out of what they have to offer a mobile marketing strategy.

Learn the do’s and don’ts of using quick response codes in order to skyrocket the potential of a campaign.

Our investigators have been seeing some fantastic campaigns with a QR code, but there have also been some clear failures that have been spotted over the weeks. Mobile marketers that are seeking to use these barcodes for an inexpensive strategy that really pays off will need to pay attention to what other firms have done successfully, and where they have let themselves down.

Our QR code investigators have compiled some of the best tips for ensuring mobile marketing success.

scan qr code

Among the do’s that our investigators recommend based on some of the leading campaigns that they have seen in the past are:

• Do create a call to action. Tell smartphone carrying consumers to use their mobile devices to scan the QR codes in order to be able to obtain something they want, whether it is an app download or a digital coupon for incredible savings.
• Do provide a mobile friendly experience. Even if you convince a consumer to scan, if all they see on their small screen is a website designed for a larger display, this will be a fast track to the end of the experience. By making the experience easy to see and navigate on a smartphone, consumers will be more willing and able to stick around and interact with what they find.
• Do offer social media sharing options. The only thing that is better than engaging one consumer is engaging many more. Give people who scan the QRcode the chance to share what they discover and like.

On the other hand, there are some don’ts that are important to avoid but that are still found all too frequently in campaigns featuring quick response codes.

• Don’t place the barcode in a location that is hard to scan. Regardless of the offer and the great call to action, if your barcode requires too much effort to read – or if it is likely to drive off before a scan can be completed – then even the best campaigns will fail.
• Don’t forget to use multimedia features. Remember that the whole point of QR codes is to reach consumers on their smartphones. In this type of situation, a video can provide a much friendlier experience than a lengthy written document. It is also much more likely to be shared over social media.
• Don’t forget to check the function of the QR code. If you come up with a stunning campaign, but the barcode doesn’t actually work due to some kind of error, then you have placed all of your eggs in a basket with a hole in the bottom.

QR Code Detective - Bank of America App

This week, our investigators saw a QR code campaign that was close to perfect at Bank of America. The barcode was positioned so that customers waiting in line (and who therefore had nothing better to do than view the ad and read the barcode) could scan and download the mobile banking app. There was a call to action that explained exactly what the customer had to do and why, but it also took the additional step of telling the consumer that they can have the application demoed by a bank employee. This additional effort including employee support was exactly what was missed at the Venetian Hotel in Vegas, as pointed out by our investigators a few weeks ago.
