Intel settles Chinese copyright infringement dispute

Intel announced this week that it has settled a copyright infringement dispute with a Chinese telecom and network equipment maker:
Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel sued Shenzhen Donjin Communication Technology Co. in 2004 for allegedly infringing its technology used for touch-pad telephone systems. Intel accused the company of copying parts of the software used by its Dialogic brand of high-end communications equipment. Intel has since sold the unit off.

In 2005, a unit of Shenzhen Donjin countersued, saying Intel engaged in monopolistic practices.

Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy said Monday it no longer made strategic sense to pursue the litigation, and the two companies brokered a licensing deal over the disputed technology. The companies have agreed to keep confidential the terms of the out-of-court settlement.
