ParkerVision Names Samsung As Additional Defendant In Patent Infringement Suit
A copy of the amended complaint will be available on ParkerVision's website at www.parkervision.com/company/public_relations/patent_litigation.php?case....
ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRKR) announced today that it has amended its patent infringement complaint filed on May 1, 2014 against Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., HTC Corporation and HTC America, Inc. (case number 6:14-cv-00687). The amended complaint, filed today in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, names Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (collectively "Samsung") as additional defendants and furthermore adds four patents to the seven patents in the original complaint.
The four additional patents relate to frequency translations and methods and systems for down-converting an electromagnetic signal. The original seven patents in this case relate to radio frequency up-conversion of electromagnetic signals, systems for control of multi-mode, multi-band communications, baseband innovations including control and system calibration, and wireless protocol conversion.
ParkerVision is seeking unspecified monetary damages from the defendants as well as a permanent injunction. ParkerVision is also seeking a finding of willful infringement against Qualcomm based on its alleged prior knowledge of certain of the patents in this case.
ParkerVision's Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Parker, commented, "We anticipate serving this amended complaint on the named parties immediately. Since the original complaint was filed in this case, our team has continued to identify infringing products and evaluate our patent claims, resulting in the addition of Samsung and additional ParkerVision patents to this case. We are eager to serve this complaint and establish a trial calendar for this action."
