Apple licenses Visual Voicemail patents, settles suit

Updated

Having been sued by Klausner Technology over patents on “visual voicemail” technology, Apple and AT&T have reached a settlement and agreed to license the patents. “The patent litigation with Apple has been settled. The patents have been licensed to Apple,” said Klausner Technology founder Judah Klausner. In December Klausner Technologies took Apple and AT&T to court over the iPhone’s Visual Voicemail feature, claiming patent infringement and seeking $360 million in damages and future royalties. Financial details of the licensing agreement and settlement between the companies were not disclosed.
