Broadcom Says Court Found Qualcomm Violated Duties

Broadcom said on Thursday that a U.S. court had adopted a jury finding that rival Qualcomm had violated its duty to disclose patents to an industry standards body and therefore waived its rights to enforce two patents related to video compression.

Wireless chip developers Broadcom and Qualcomm have been involved in several patent infringement cases including a complaint Broadcom made with regulators asking to ban the U.S. sale of certain chips made by Qualcomm .

Broadcom said the San Diego federal district court handling the case was due to hear arguments on the appropriate remedy on May 2.
