A recent court filing appears to show Google and the Rockstar patent licensing business settling their lawsuit.
Rockstar is a consortium of companies that includes Apple, BlackBerry, Ericsson, Microsoft, and Sony. It acquired thousands of former Nortel Network Corp patents in 2011, paying $4.5 billion.
Last year, the consortium filed a legal complaint against Google and seven manufacturers that produced Android-powered smartphones: Asustek, HTC, Huawei, LG, Pantech, Samsung and ZTE. It claimed that seven former Nortel patents were being used in the Android OS.
According to a document from a Texas court, Rockstar and Google settled this dispute in mid-November.
Further details have not been disclosed.
