Funai, Polaroid Reach Deal on DTV Technology Licenses
Funai Electric said it has reached a patent licensing agreement with Polaroid and the Petters Group for certain Funai Electric patents relating to technologies it controls that are included in the ATSC standards according to an article in TWICE.

As a result of the settlement, Funai will move to dismiss Polaroid and Petters Group from a patent infringement suit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Funai said 11 companies remain in the International Trade Commission investigation regarding infringement of Funai’s patents.

Agreements were reached earlier this year with International Reliance Corporation and International Norcent Technology. The number of licensees of Funai’s DTV patent now total 15.
