Nokia today announced that Viewsonic has recently agreed to license Nokia’s wireless essential patents related to 2G, 3G, 4G and more. As a result the scheduled trials between Nokia and Viewsonic got cancelled in Germany today.
Nokia announced today that “Viewsonic recently took a royalty bearing license to Nokia’s wireless essential patents for 2G, 3G, 4G and wireless LAN, becoming the latest of more than 40 companies licensed to Nokia standards essential patents”. The immediate effects of this settlement include that two Nokia v. ViewSonic SEP trials scheduled to take place in Mannheim today were canceled, as was the announcement of a ruling on a case that went to trial in March, where the parties already confirmed to the court that they were in settlement talks.
Nokia still has many patent cases against Viewsonic, HTC in courts around the world.
