Apple gör upp i patenttvist

Juryn var utsedd, förhandlingen var bokad och med bara några timmars marginal så nådde Apple och Unwired Planet en uppgörelse i patenttvisten mellan bolagen.

Unwired Planet är det bolag som köpte upp ett stort antal av Ericssons tidigare patent, 2013. Ericsson har fortfarande intressen i bolaget och får 20 procent av eventuella uppgörelser.

In 2015, Judge Chhabria ruled that Apple didn’t infringe the four patents at issue in the case. Chhabria’s ruling was mostly overturned on appeal (PDF) last July, leading to the jury trial that was set to start yesterday.

In addition to suing Apple, Unwired Planet also sued Google, Microsoft, and Square in the US. The company also took the unusual step of suing Google, Samsung, and Huawei in London, a nontraditional venue for non-practicing entity lawsuits. Unwired Planet’s stock jumped 20 percent after it beat Samsung and Huawei in the UK.
