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.
WiLAN sues three top cable companies
WiLAN, a Canadian company that, in its own words, is charged with "developing, protecting, and monetizing technology intellectual property," has filed another ambitious lawsuit, this time against cable companies Charter, Comcast and Time Warner. The Eastern District of Texas complaint claims that the three allegedly infringed patented technology through their use of cable modems. The 1998 patent covers the broadcasting of data to a number of remote networks and computers.
