- Sony settled the lawsuit. The terms weren’t disclosed in a federal court filing in the case. “Caltech hereby informs the court that it has resolved its dispute” with Sony Electronics and Tokyo-based Sony Corp., the Pasadena, California-based school said in a June 23 filing in Los Angeles.
- Nikon and Panasonic denied Caltech’s infringement claims, said the patents are invalid and accused the school and inventors of misleading the US Patent and Trademark Office in order to obtain the patents.
- Olympus also denied infringing any valid patent and claimed they were unenforceable.
- Samsung hasn’t yet responded to the complaint, according to the court docket.
A lawyer for Caltech said the university “reached basic settlement terms” with another party in the case and court papers may be filed in two to three weeks - the case he talks about is Canon.
