Posted by at 1:21 pm on October 24, 2013

Apple did not violate patents owned by Wi-LAN, according to a federal jury in Texas. Wi-LAN is a patent-holding firm that licenses its technology to other companies.

It hit HP, BlackBerry, Novotel, HTC, and others with similar lawsuits, some of which have been settled. In particular, Wi-LAN accused Apple of infringing on a Bluetooth patent. Apple says that the Qualcomm chips inside its iPhones don’t use the technology in question. Wi-LAN was seeking $248 million to cover the value of the patent plus a percentage of each iPhone sold.

Wi-LAN said it was reviewing its options.
