HP SETTLES PATENT SUIT WITH EMC FOR $325M Hewlett-Packard Co. has agreed to pay EMC Corp. $325 million to settle patent infringement suits that arose between the two companies in 2001. HP has the option to make the payment through a purchase of EMC products over the next five years. HP spokesman Ryan Donovan said he did not know if the purchase option was unusual, but said it would allow HP “to buy the same products we would normally buy from them.” EMC counsel Christopher Ottenweller, a partner in Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe’s Menlo Park office, referred calls to EMC’s public relations office. EMC spokesman Mark Frederickson said HP had inherited a patent suit that EMC had filed against StorageApps Inc., which HP acquired in 2000. EMC won that dispute, which involved technology to replicate data, at trial last year and the case was under appeal. Frederickson said HP filed suit against EMC in 2002 alleging infringement of storage system patents, and EMC countersued. Based in Hopkinton, Mass., EMC sells data storage and management systems. HP was represented by Chicago’s Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott. — Brenda Sandburg
