This article reports on a patent-infringement lawsuit filed by Lucent against Dolby Labs in California in August 2002. The lawsuit filed by Lucent against Dolby could materially impact Dolby's licensing business and may seriously harm the financial condition and results operations, Dolby said in its prospectus.

The suit goes to a jury in April 2005 in San Jose, California.
