In the last March, Intertrust filed a lawsuit against Apple, stating that the Cupertino company had been illegally using its several technologies in the products by breaching 15 patents. The technology described in the patents was related to security and distributed computing system, which had been allegedly applied in iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac.
Talal Shamoon, the CEO of Intertrust, said, “Apple makes many products that use Intertrust’s inventions.” He added, “Our patents are foundational to modern Internet security and trusted computing, and result from years of internal research and development. We are proud of our record of peaceful and constructive licensing with industry leaders. We find it regrettable that we are forced to seek Court assistance to resolve this matter.”
However, according to Apple Insider, on Tuesday, attorneys for both the companies informed Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, the District Court Judge, that the two parties have resolved the issue. As a result, they ask the Judge to reject the case. Afterward, The Judge approved the request, stating that the two companies must bear “the attorneys’ fees, costs of court and expenses.”
Nonetheless, the terms of the agreement hasn’t been published yet.
