IP firm sued, settled with Novell on different patent in August

Legal

The IP firm that filed patent litigation against Red Hat and Novell mounted legal threats against many other U.S. software companies in 2007 including Oracle, SAP, Computer Associates, EMC, Adobe, Autodesk, Apple, SPSS — and Novell.

That’s right. In late August, the Newport Beach, Calif. –based Acacia Technology Licensing’ subsidiary Disc Link Corp. entered into a licensing agreement with Novell covering patents related to portable storage devices with links to the Internet.

That deal settled litigation pending against Novell in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Oracle signed a similar agreement with Acacia less than a week later.

A Novell spokesman confirmed the case was settled in August but declined to specify the Novell product or products at issue.
