Apple wins in patent infringement trial against Wi-LAN

Apple was accused of infringing a patent relating to CDMA and HSPA communications technologies

A federal jury in Texas found that Apple had not infringed on a patent related to CDMA and HSPA communications technologies owned by patent-licensing firm Wi-LAN.

The jury also found Wednesday that two of the claims of U.S. patent no. RE37,802 patent were invalid.

Wi-LAN began litigation against several technology companies for alleged infringement of two of its patents in 2011. The other patent in the litigation was patent no. 5,282,222, related to the use of Wi-Fi and LTE, but Apple was not accused of infringing the patent.

Since filing, six of the seven defendants have signed license and settlement agreements to resolve the litigation, according to Wi-LAN.

Wi-LAN in Canada said it was disappointed with the jury's decision but does not believe previous license agreements signed related to the patents are negatively impacted by the decision on Wednesday by the jury in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall division.

The lawsuit is just one of several filed by Wi-LAN against Apple and other companies, including one filed in December in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
