Nokia settles patent dispute

Nokia claims to have settled its dispute with Kyocera Corp. over patents. The result will be that Kyocera will be able to use some patents belonging to the world's largest mobile phone maker. Now, Kyocera will pay royalties on Nokia's essential patents, and some additional patents. This new agreement resolves all outstanding litigation between the two companies.

"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," the Finnish company said.
