Boston University has won settlements from 25 companies it sued for infringing “a professor’s patented technology for producing blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs),” a university news site reported yesterday.
The list includes familiar names in the tech industry such as Acer, Amazon, Apple, BlackBerry, Canon, Dell, HP, HTC, LG, Microsoft, Motorola Mobility (owned by Google), NEC, Nokia, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, and Toshiba.
BU’s article didn’t name the companies, but the news site Xconomy dug up a court document listing them all.
