Microsoft and Bradium settle patent lawsuit

Patent licensing firm General Patent Corporation (GPC) announced that its subsidiary Bradium Technologies LLC settled its patent infringement litigation with Microsoft.

Bradium sued Microsoft in the US District Court for the District of Delaware in 2015 and the trial was scheduled for January, 2018.

GPC said the parties have resolved their differences and reached an amicable settlement.

It said Microsoft has taken a license under the Bradium patents, but other terms and conditions of the settlement are confidential.

“We are pleased to reach a settlement and to license Microsoft under the Bradium patents,” said GPC CEO Alexander Poltorak.

GPC said Bradium owns an extensive patent portfolio “which generally relates to optimizing image delivery over limited bandwidth communications channels by reducing latency in transmitting full resolution images over the Internet, particularly for complex images such as geographic, topographic and other highly detailed maps.”

GPC is the manager and exclusive licensing agent for Bradium.
