Reuters - "Wi-LAN and Broadcom to settle patent lawsuits"

GPC's Alexander Poltorak was correct in his prediction, in a previous interview, that Broadcom would be among the next companies to settle with Wi-LAN after the Canadian patent holding company settled with Intel earlier this month. Wi-LAN announced the Broadcom settlement on January 20, and the agreement will be finalized within the next few weeks.

In "Wi-LAN and Broadcom to settle patent lawsuits" (, January 20, 2011), Dr. Poltorak forecasts even more settlements in Wi-LAN's near future.

"Typically, the case is settled on the court steps," Poltorak said, adding that defendants usually settle these disputes through license negotiations rather than roll the dice and go to court.
