Apple, LG cleared of Alcatel-Lucent patent infringement
A lawsuit against Apple and LG over alleged infringement of video codec patents found both companies not guilty of infringing on IP held by Alcatel-Lucent, with the judge saying that both companies had properly licensed the patents. Alcatel-Lucent had been seeking over $172 million in damages from Apple's alleged infringement of three patents, and $9.1 million from LG over two other patents, all related to video codec usage. The case had been in litigation for almost two years, and a federal jury cleared both Apple and LG completely.
