Dolby has revealed that Research In Motion (RIM) has agreed to license technologies ending an intellectual property dispute between the two companies.
The announcement came from Dolby on Monday and said that all cases against RIM have been dropped.
“We are pleased to welcome RIM into Dolby’s family of mobile technology licensees,” Dolby’s Andy Sherman said in a statement.
The Dolby executive vice president and general counsel added that: “We believe in and will continue to protect the value of our intellectual property.”
Dolby started its intellectual property dispute against RIM mid-June when it filed a case saying BlackBerry smartphones and the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook tablet infringed on patents the sound technologies company owns.
Dolby’s dispute with RIM focuses on sound file compression which is important especially with today’s mobile devices which have limited storage space.
No licensing terms has been revealed by Dolby, however, as it just said that its deal with RIM for licensing its technologies are on “standard terms”.
