Summary:
"Wi-LAN has successfully negotiated patent licensing deals with a number of companies covering a broad range of patent families and technologies," said Wi-LAN president Jim Skippen on Thursday. "Our existing licensing agreements are a strong endorsement of the strength and validity of our valuable patent portfolio. While we prefer to resolve patent infringement through business discussions, we have consistently maintained that litigation was always a possibility when negotiations do not result in a licence within a reasonable time." The suit was filed in the Eastern District of Texas--the same district in which the Australian science organization CSIRO is suing various companies over Wi-Fi patents.
