Nokia settles patent dispute with Kyocera

Nokia has resolved a dispute with Kyocera, allowing the Japanese company to use some of the world's largest mobile phone maker's patents, an Associated Press report said.


The report said according to an agreement between the two firms, Kyocera will pay royalties on 'Nokia's essential patents, and some additional patents."


'Reciprocally, Nokia is licensed under all of Kyocera's essential patents, and some additional patents, relating to all standards and covering all Nokia mobile phone, module and infrastructure products,' Nokia, in statement, said.


The report said the new license agreement resolves all pending litigation between the parties without contingencies of any kind, Nokia said, but gave no other details.
