Yahoo! Settles E-Commerce Patent Dispute With NCR

It emerged last week that US-based technology firm NCR (formerly National Cash Register) and e-commerce giant, Yahoo! have reached a settlement over claims that the latter organisation infringed NCR's copyright.

According to reports, in a letter to Yahoo! last year, NCR warned that the e-tailer was infringing on patents covering the ordering and downloading of resources from computerised repositaries, a system for the management of resources, and a tool to manage web synchronisation and tracking operations over multiple browsers.

Yahoo! hit back in December 2002, filing a court action which asked the court to declare that the patents in question were not valid, and that there was therefore no infringement taking place.

However, on Tuesday, the e-commerce firm reportedly entered into a licensing agreement with NCR. The terms of this agreement have not yet been disclosed.
