Wi-LAN patent dispute ending?

WSJ notes of the Wi-LAN/Intel MOU to settle patent litigation:

[ Wi-LAN Chief Executive Jim Skippen] also noted that Intel was the lead defender in Wi-LAN's patent dispute with 17 companies, including Broadcom Corp. (BRCM), Atheros Coummincations Inc. (ATHR), Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ), to name a few. The case alleges infringement of several Wi-LAN patents that cover aspects of various wireless technologies, including Wifi, CDMA (code division multiple access), DSL (digital subscriber line) and bluetooth. It is scheduled to begin Feb. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

With Intel out, what's next in this litigation?
