RedOctane, Activision and peripherals manufacturer The Ant Commandos have settled the Guitar Hero lawsuit initiated in August this year.

The suit accused The Ant Commandos of copyright infringement over Guitar Hero controllers, while the peripherals manufacturer counter-sued Activision and RedOctane claiming infringement of a controller modelled for Konami's Guitar Freaks game.

However the case has been officially dismissed by a US court, after all companies reached an agreement and settled out of court.

Neither company has revealed the terms of the agreement.
