Imation Settles SanDisk Suit


Milpitas, Calif. - SanDisk said Imation has signed a patent cross-license agreement with SanDisk to settle two cases filed by SanDisk in Federal District Court against Imation.

The cases alleged infringement of flash-memory system-level patents, SanDisk said, and under the terms of the cross-license, Imation will reportedly pay SanDisk royalties on various flash-memory products.

SanDisk also said that Imation entered into a stipulated judgment of infringement and validity in SanDisk's favor on claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,137,011, which covers the use of certain encryption technology in a memory card.

The specific terms of the agreement are confidential.
