Wi-LAN Finally Ends Patent War with BlackBerry

Last year patent licensing company Wi-LAN filed a lawsuit against what was then Research In Motion for infringing a patent that relates to Bluetooth technology.

Wi-LAN, which licenses its intellectual property to over 250 companies, alleged in 2012 that several BlackBerry devices used technology patented by it, including the Bold, Torch, and Pearl, as well as the PlayBook tablet.

This month the two companies struck a deal to dismiss all pending patent litigation. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Wi-LAN has also filed patent alwsuits against HTC, Sierra Waireless, and even Apple over LTE mobile technology.
