Apple did not violate patents owned by Wi-LAN, according to a federal jury in Texas. Wi-LAN is a patent-holding firm that licenses its technology to other companies. It hit HP, BlackBerry, Novotel, HTC, and others with similar lawsuits, some of which have been settled. In particular, Wi-LAN accused Apple of infringing on a Bluetooth patent.

Wi-LAN said it was reviewing its options.
