Google is apparently ready to end the patent dispute with Rockstar Consortium that began a year ago, according to court documents.
The court papers show that Rockstar's request to postpone all standing deadlines to the end of this year has been approved.
Reports say that Rockstar and Google are working out the details of a settlement, and that "all matters in controversy between the parties" are settled in principle.
Rockstar said when its bid was approved that the company was looking forward to sharing and working with the industry.
The firm has been accused of being a patent troll, however, and admitted on its homepage that it will make its multimillion dollar purchase work for the company.
"Fostering innovation works hand-in-hand with the need for patent protection," Rockstar said. "Great ideas and the investment behind them deserve to be rewarded and respected."
A report on Apple Insider quotes the court documents as saying: "[Rockstar], pursuant to the terms of the Term Sheet, requests that the court order be stayed 45 days until December 29, 2014, while the Term Sheet is reduced to a definitive agreement.
"This period (45 days from the Term Sheet) is necessary due to the complexity of the transaction and the number of additional parties whose claims are concurrently being resolved. Google does not oppose this request."
No financial terms have been revealed so far, but it was suggested earlier this week that Cisco would settle a similar squabble with Rockstar for $188m.
V3 has asked Google and Rockstar to comment.
