Submission + - Apple, Amazon, Samsung, Microsoft & More Settle Patent Lawsuits with Boston

curtwoodward writes: Boston University hadn't been very aggressive with intellectual property lawsuits in the past. But that changed in 2012, when the school began suing the biggest names in consumer tech, alleging infringement of a patent on blue LEDs — a patent that, no coincidence, is set to expire at the end of 2014. As of today, about 25 big tech names have now settled the lawsuits, using "defensive" patent firm RPX. A dozen or so more defendants are probably headed that way. And BU is no longer a quiet patent holder.
