As reported by Reuters, Volkswagen Group has purportedly reached an agreement with Acer over a patent dispute involving 4G technology.
Acer had alleged in a U.S. lawsuit that Volkswagen infringed on its patent by using Acer’s 4G mobile chip technology in its cars for the past two years, without the appropriate licence.
To settle the dispute, Volkswagen reportedly entered a licensing agreement for the 4G patents with Avanci, an independent licensing marketplace.
