WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDCC), a wireless research and development company, provided the following comment on today's decision by the U.S. International Trade Commission to terminate Investigation No. 337-TA-868.
"The Commission's decision is disappointing, running contrary to a number of judicial decisions involving, in some instances, the exact same patents as in this case," commented William J. Merritt, President and Chief Executive Officer of InterDigital. "We look forward to our appeal to the Federal Circuit, which we believe will, again, find in InterDigital's favor. Meanwhile, our license agreements with major market leaders in both terminal units and infrastructure equipment have provided ample validation of our technology contributions and portfolio of inventions related to wireless technologies. As a result, we do not feel this decision will have any meaningful impact on our progress towards our licensing goals."
InterDigital develops technologies that are at the core of mobile devices, networks, and services worldwide. We solve many of the industry's most critical and complex technical challenges, inventing solutions for more efficient broadband networks and a richer multimedia experience years ahead of market deployment.
