Intel settles with WiLAN over wireless patents
Intel has paid out a settlement to Canadian firm WiLAN after being one of the many companies sued over key technology for Wi-Fi and DSL power management back in 2007. This puts an end to the litigation between the two companies, but the value of the settlement hasn't been revealed, according to a Friday report. Intel has paid for use of the patented technology.
Late last month, WiLAN delayed the trial until early February, and expects to sign a definitive agreement with Intel in a matter of weeks.
Other companies still involved in the lawsuit include Apple, Dell, HP and more. WiLAN has widely been regarded as a patent troll as it no longer makes any of its own products and instead tries to push for royalties and settlements.
