OTTAWA -- Wi-LAN Inc. ("WiLAN") (TSX:WIN)(NASDAQ:WILN) today provided a litigation update.

In January 2010, WiLAN sued LG Electronics, Inc. and LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc. (collectively, "LG") for infringement of WiLAN's U.S. Patent No. 5,828,402 ("the 402 patent") in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.

On March 7, 2012, U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan ruled that LG did not infringe the 402 patent on a claim construction issue and granted an LG motion for summary judgment of non-infringement.

Subsequently, WiLAN filed an appeal of Judge Kaplan's ruling with the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ("CAFC"). In support of this appeal, WiLAN participated in an oral hearing that took place on December 5, 2012.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
