The Kudelski Group said it has entered into a comprehensive patent license agreement with Apple.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the parties agreed to dismiss all pending patent litigation, Kudelski said.

Kudelski has been busy mending fences of late.

Kudelski and Yahoo, whose operating business is being acquired by Verizon, settled their patent squabble in May.

The Kudelski Group’s  OpenTV and Nagra France SAS subsidiaries filed a patent infringement suit against Verizon Communications and its AOL division in late 2015 over claims that they are infringing on a batch of U.S. patents tied to streaming video services. In February, Kudelski and Verizon entered a multi-year patent cross licensing agreement that dismissed all pending patent litigation that related to Verizon’s Fios TV service, video advertising capabilities, and OTT streaming services, including AOL.
