It seems that RIM and Dolby Laboratories have been able to put aside their differences and come to an agreement over Dolby's patent complaint against the smartphone manufacturer.

According to Reuters, RIM has signed a licensing agreement with Dolby to use its technologies in smartphones and tablets. Dolby had originally filed lawsuits in the U.S. and Germany complaining that RIM was using proprietary audio compression technologies in its BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet without a licensing agreement.

Both lawsuits have been dropped at this time. The exact terms of the licensing agreement were not disclosed.
