Apple Computer Settles Patent Squabble with Creative

Posted by michaelshawnlane on August 25, 2006

Apple Computer resolved the patent issue with Creative Technology by paying them $100 million US dollars.

This will end all legal disputes between Apple and Creative. It also ends five other pending lawsuits. Now Apple will have the ability to license the patent to other companies. In addition, Creative will make iPod accessories starting later this year.

This deal should benefit both companies.
