The HP-Acer patent infringement battle is over.

HP has settled all ongoing patent litigation with Acer.

The confidential settlement agreement resolves all claims asserted in three federal court lawsuits and two U.S. International Trade Commission investigations between the parties. As a result of the settlement agreement, each action will be dismissed as to the parties.

In March last year, HP filed a lawsuit in a Texas federal court against Taiwan's Acer regarding patent infringement case related to PC technology. According to HP, Acer violated five patents that are related to optical data storage, circuits and methods for lowering computer system power consumption, multiple processors in computer systems and an improved method for attaching devices to a digital serial bus.

Acer responded to the allegations with a countersuit in July.
