Apple co-defendant settles lawsuit
A co-defendant with Apple has reached a settlement in a patent-infringement suit involving visual voice-mail technology used in the iPhone. "The company, SimulScribe LLC, said it reached a settlement with Klausner Technologies and has entered into a licensing agreement with Klausner to use its visual voicemail patents."
Klausner originally filed suit against Apple, AT&T, & other companies on Dec. 3 2007, seeking US$360 million in damages.
It's interesting to see that Apple seems to be settling more since the Creative "iPod Menu" lawsuit was settled. I wonder if this means that Apple will just use cash in the bank to eliminate pesks like this in the future? I think this mentality ends up encouraging others to file wild claims against Apple in hopes of a settlement.
