Wi-LAN Inc. has announced that Texas Instruments Inc. will be dismissed from Wi-LAN's legal action No. 2:07-cv-474 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The parties have also consented not to take any further proceedings against each other with respect to the Wi-LAN patents at issue in that action, for an agreed period of time. Despite this agreement, Wi-LAN will still have the right to seek damages from, or bring a future lawsuit against, TI for infringement of these patents.

Last year, Wi-LAN has filed two patent infringement lawsuits against 22 companies, including TI, Acer, Apple and Hewlett-Packard. The filings claim that the companies infringe on Wi-LAN patents related to Wi-Fi and power consumption in DSL products, by making or selling such products as wireless routers, modems and notebook PCs.
