Seagate and Cornice Settle Patent Dispute


Seagate Technology and Cornice announced on Monday that they have reached a settlement of their pending patent lawsuits.

Both companies have dismissed the Delaware litigation between them and agreed not to sue each other for patent infringement through the end of 2007. The terms of the settlement were not mentionned.

The spat began in June 2004 when hard disk drive manufacturer Seagate filed a lawsuit that alleged consumer storage solutions Cornice's drives violated six of its patents. The lawsuit seeked to prevent Cornice from selling the drives in the U.S. and asked for monetary damages.

Scotts Valley, California-based Seagate followed this lawsuit with the now-settled ITC complaint in July. Cornice fired back in August with a countersuit against Seagate in the Delaware court.

Last year, Cornice had settled one part of a patent infringement dispute with Seagate Technology over 1-inch hard-disk drives by agreeing to stop manufacturing the drives in question.

According to the agreement, Longmont, Colorado-based Cornice stopped producing 1GB, 1.5GB and 2GB versions of its 1-inch hard disk drive in May 2005.

That settlement did not affect the two other lawsuits, the suit and countersuit, filed at the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware that were dropped yesterday.
