Apple agrees to out-of-court settlement in Intertrust patent lawsuit

Intertrust backed by Sony, Philips

Apple has agreed to an out-of-court settlement for a lawsuit brought by Intertrust Technologies last year, court documents show. The two parties filed for a dismissal yesterday with District Court judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers. She has since agreed to the request, dismissing claims with prejudice, and ordering each side to pay its own legal fees. The terms of the settlement haven't been made public, however.

Intertrust is a holding company jointly controlled by Sony and Philips. In March 2013, it accused Apple of violating 15 different patents related to "security and distributed trusted computing." Virtually every major Apple product was listed as infringing, including not only iPhones, iPads, and Macs but the Apple TV, iTunes, iCloud, and the App Store.

The two parties may have come to a licensing deal. Intetrust already has licenses with a number of other corporations, such as Adobe, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, LG, and Vodafone.
