Summary:
Canadian patent-licensing company Wi-Lan Inc. said Monday that it has reached a deal with Research In Motion to license certain wireless technology patents, resolving a pending patent litigation between the two companies. [...] The Ottawa-based company filed a lawsuit in June alleging that RIM's mobile devices and other equipment infringe Wi-Lan patents. Wi-Lan filed the suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division — a court that is favored by patent-license companies seeking big judgments. Wi-Lan also named Motorola and UTStarCom in the case.
