This article is more than 12 years old.

An agreement has been reached in a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by GateHouse Media against The New York Times Co.

GateHouse sued the Times, the parent company of The Boston Globe and its Web Site, last month, claiming the Globe's new community Web sites use GateHouse's newspaper headlines and lead sentences without permission.

GateHouse claims violates copyright and trademark laws by taking GateHouse material published on its "Wicked Local" Web sites.

A clerk to U.S. District Judge William Young said the two sides reached an agreement over the weekend just before the case was set to go to trial Monday in U.S. District Court.

No details have been announced. Lawyers for GateHouse declined comment Monday morning.
