BlackBerry is settling a lot of the litigations from past years. Just yesterday it was revealed that BlackBerry quietly settled with Kik Interactive. Now, Wi-LAN Inc. today announced that BlackBerry and Wi-LAN have reached an agreement to dismiss all pending patent litigations between the companies.
As part of the agreement, BlackBerry has obtained a license to certain patents in suit in Florida. As a result, all litigations between the companies in Florida will be dismissed with prejudice.
In addition, the agreement calls for the dismissal, without prejudice, of all litigation between the companies in Texas. The parties will pursue licensing discussions regarding certain other wireless technologies. Specific financial terms of the agreement reached are confidential.
