WILMINGTON, Del., April 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDCC), a wireless research and development company, today announced that a jury verdict in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware found no infringement of one of the company's patents -- U.S. Patent Number 7,941,151 (the "'151 patent"). In an earlier trial in October 2014, a jury found that ZTE 3G and 3G/4G devices had infringed U.S. Patent Numbers 7,190,966 and 7,286,847 (collectively referred to as the "Power Ramp-Up Patents") and U.S. Patent Number 8,380,244. In that earlier trial, a mistrial was declared on the '151 patent when the judge determined that further construction of certain claim language was required, resulting in today's separate trial and verdict.
"While we're disappointed by today's jury decision, we feel overall that our Delaware actions against ZTE are successful in highlighting the strength of InterDigital's contributions to worldwide core wireless technology, and supporting our longstanding licensing program," said Lawrence F. Shay, Executive Vice President, Intellectual Property, and Chief Intellectual Property Counsel. "We look forward to the damages phase of the proceedings and hope that, overall, the results of our Delaware actions will be helpful in facilitating discussions with ZTE and others that lead to fair and reasonable license agreements with InterDigital."
