Microsoft Drops Android Patent Lawsuit Against Kyocera

By 02:34 Mon, 26 Jul 2021 Comments

Just a few months after Microsoft sued Kyocera for allegedly infringing on its Android patents, the software giant has dropped the lawsuit.

This came after both companies struck a deal to expand a prior patent licensing arrangement. "The recent agreement enables the companies to utilize a broader range of each other’s technologies in their respective products through a patent cross license," Microsoft assumed in a press release.

For those who aren't in the know, back in March this year, Microsoft filed a lawsuit against the Japanese electronics company in the US, claiming that three of the latter's Android smartphone lines - including Duraforce, Hydro, and Brigadier - violate its patents.
