NVIDIA and Samsung Agree to Settle IP Dispute


NVIDIA and Samsung have agreed to settle their IP dispute, dismissing all pending IP ligation between the two companies and licensing a small number of patents to each other. 

This process began back in 2014 when Nvidia started a patent lawsuit with both Samsung and Qualcomm, with Qualcomm settling the suit and Samsung filing a counter suit against Nvidia later in the year. 

In October 2015, the International Trade Commission ruled against Nvidia and with Samsung's counter claim, which may have resulted in an import ban on applicable Nvidia products. Now both companies have entered an agreement where both companies have agreed to license select IP to each other rather than fight a prolonged legal battle. 


     The agreement will lead to the immediate dismissal of all pending IP litigation in U.S. district courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Patent Office between the companies.

The settlement includes the licensing of a small number of patents by each company to the other, but no broad cross-licensing of patents or other compensation. Further details of the agreement are not being disclosed.
