|Revenue From Contract With Customer [Abstract]|
NOTE 3. REVENUE RECOGNITION
Revenue recognition. We generate revenue primarily from the licensing of our intellectual property. We also, occasionally, receive a one-time sale of certain products and/or reimbursement of our equipment.
License fees. We derive product lease and royalty revenue from negotiated recurring fee license agreements and the performance of our products. We account for these agreements as month-to-month contracts and recognize revenue each month as we satisfy our performance obligations. In addition, revenue associated with performance-based agreements is recognized during the month that the usage of the product or intellectual property occurs.
Product sales. Occasionally, we sell certain incidental products or receive reimbursement of our equipment after the commencement of the new license agreement. Revenue from such sales is recognized as a separate performance obligation when we ship the items.
Disaggregation of revenue
The following table disaggregates our revenue by geographic location for the following periods:
Revenue contract liability
For a portion of our business, we invoice our clients monthly in advance for unlimited use of our intellectual property licenses and recognize a revenue contract liability that represents such advanced billing to our clients for unsatisfied performance. We reduce the revenue contract liability and recognize revenue when we transfer those goods or services and, therefore, satisfy our performance obligation.
The table below summarizes changes in the revenue contract liability during the six months ended June 30, 2020:
Revenue recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2020 that was included in the beginning balance of revenue contract liability was $6,250. Revenue recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2020 that was included in the beginning balance of revenue contract liability above was $1,285,932.
