WiLAN ends litigation with Toshiba

Wi-LAN (TSX:WIN), an Ottawa-based patent licensing firm, has agreed to end a legal dispute with Toshiba.

The agreement, which WiLAN announced on Thursday, means that pending litigation between the two sides is now over.

Toshiba will get a license to use some of the patents as part of the deal, according to a WiLAN press release.

Terms of the agreement were not released.

The end to the litigation is the latest in a string of deals WiLAN has concluded since a commitment company officials made in August to reducing legal costs.
