According to a March 27, 2009 letter sent to the ITC, Microsoft has sought to formally withdraw its February 25, 2009 complaint against TomTom.

As we explained in our February 27, 2009 post, Microsoft’s complaint alleges, among other things, that TomTom N.V. of the Netherlands and TomTom, Inc. of Concord, Massachusetts (collectively, “TomTom”) unlawfully import into the U.S., sell for importation, and/or sell within the U.S. after importation certain portable navigation computing devices and associated computer software that infringe certain claims of five Microsoft U.S. Patents.

Also, according to media reports, Microsoft and TomTom have recently agreed to settle a number of patent infringement lawsuits, including the ITC action initiated by Microsoft last month.
