Google and Motorola Settle Litigation with Immersion
Immersion Corporation today announced that it has settled a patent-based lawsuit filed against Google and its Motorola subsidiary. Immersion alleged that Google and Motorola violated its patents pertaining to haptic feedback as used in Motorola's Android devices and select Nexus-branded handsets. Google and Motorola have agreed to compensate Immersion for past Motorola device shipments and agreed to licensing terms for Immersion's technology moving forward. Immersion has dropped all its litigation against Motorola. Haptic feedback is the micro-vibration feature of many devices that allows users to know when they've pressed a capacitive or software button.
