BOSTON (Reuters) - Business software maker Red Hat Inc (RHT.N) said on Wednesday that it has settled two of three pending patent lawsuits that the company has been fighting.

Red Hat, the world’s biggest seller of Linux software, said it has settled patent claims by Firestar Software Inc, filed in 2006, and DataTern Inc, filed this year.

Financial terms of the settlements were not disclosed.

Red Hat Vice President Rob Tiller said the company is still defending itself against a third patent complaint filed in October 2007 by IP Innovation LLC and Technology Licensing Corp.
