In a bid to avoid the bitter battles that have raged around third-generation wireless technology, owners of the patents on which the fourth-generation LTE wireless technology is built have agreed to charge each other "reasonable" license fees. The Magnificent Seven are Nokia, the world's largest handset maker by volume sold; Sony Ericsson; NEC; Alcatel-Lucent; NextWave Wireless; Nokia Siemens Networks; and Ericsson. They've agreed to a framework based on fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory licensing, and won't charge each other royalties of more than 10 percent for handsets.
