The official nVidia statement indicates that “the agreement will leads to the immediate dismissal of all pending IP litigation in US district courts, the US ITC and the USPTO between the companies.” NVidia further specifies that the settlement will initialize licensing agreements between the two companies, wherein each will grant license to “a small number of patents” to the other. NVidia notes that “no broad cross-licensing of patents or other compensation” will be included within the settlement. Neither company appears to have been awarded a pay-out through this settlement.
The battle has been ongoing since 2015 – though that seems relatively short, in “lawsuit years” – and almost seemed mutually ridiculous from the start.
Samsung and nVidia have fully resolved the lawsuits and will not release further information than what we've posted herein.
