Apple settles patent infringement lawsuit with e-Watch

Apple has reached a settlement ending E-Watch’s claims that the company is infringing two patents related to cellphone camera technology, according to a document filed in Texas federal court on Friday.

In a three-page joint motion to dismiss, E-Watch and Apple told U.S. Magistrate Judge Roy S. Payne that they have reached a settlement ending San Antonio-based e-Watch’s claims, reports Law360. E-Watch filed several identical infringement complaints against some of the biggest names in electronics in December 2013, including Apple, Nokia, and Sony. It claimed their camera phones, including Apple’s iPhone 4S, violated its patented system, which does things such as capture and transmit images via camera phones.

E-Watch describes itself as a company that “develops and markets hardware, software, and services designed to enhance monitoring, traffic management, security and surveillance of commercial transport systems.”
