Judge Alsup decreed Langdell "shall notify all persons and entities" with whom he's entered in a licensing agreement, showing them his courtroom defeat.
This was the final judgement rendered in the case Langdell had instigated against EA over the use of 'Mirror's Edge', of which he wanted an injunction. The publisher wasn't going to take this quietly and uncovered evidence of fraud by Langdell.
"Plaintiff shall notify all persons and entities with whom a licensing agreement has been obtained involving the trademarks asserted herein that the marks have been cancelled and provide these persons and entities with a copy of the order denying plaintiff's motion for a preliminary injunction and the final judgment," reads judge Alsup's ruling.
A sworn statement by Tim Langdell or his representatives must be submitted by the end of this week stating that he has informed all these affected parties, which effectively opens him up to a series of possible counter-suits.
"We're pleased that we've reached a settlement and can put this behind us," said EA in a statement. "This settlement goes a long way in protecting the rights of independent developers." Both parties were told to cover their own legal costs.
