Dolby drops legal action as RIM signs licence agreement

Dolby Laboratories says Research in Motion has agreed to license Dolby’s audio technologies for its devices. As a result, Dolby has withdrawn the two patent infringement lawsuits it had filed against RIM earlier this year.

RIM is now able to use High Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding (HE AAC) in its BlackBerry smartphones and PlayBook tablet devices without infringing Dolby’s patented audio compression technology.

Andy Sherman, executive vice president and general counsel of Dolby, said “We are pleased to welcome RIM into Dolby’s family of mobile technology licensees. We believe in and will continue to protect the value of our intellectual property.”
