Google and Rockstar wind down their year-long patent war
By Thom Holwerda on 2014-11-20 21:44:37

Good news, I guess. The patent troll Rockstar - a consortium lead by Apple, Microsoft, and a few others - has kissed and made up with Google.

A court document (PDF) filed Monday revealed that Google and Rockstar had settled, "in principle, all matters in controversy between the parties," and the two sides signed a term sheet. It isn't clear if the deal will also resolve Rockstar's allegations of infringement against Google's Android partners who got sued, including Samsung and HTC.

One patent troll lawsuit less.
