DNA Genotek (provider of biological sample collection products) sued Ancestry.com (genealogy research website) for patent infringement.  The lawsuit centred on Ancestry.com’s use of technology in their saliva collecting kits which was protected by a couple of DNA Genotek’s DNA testing US patents.

Following the recent settlement and licensing agreement (involving a $12.5 million payout by Ancentry.com) the patent infringement lawsuit has been dropped.  DNA Genotek has now granted Ancestry.com a non-exclusive worldwide licence to the human saliva DNA collection patents for their DNA collection kits used as part of their genetic-testing service.
