    Foss says IDCC wants revenues for imports to countries where idcc has no patents

     

    we all know that idcc boasts thousands of patents.
    and occasionally they remind us that many of these patents are duplicates of u.s. patents, that are filed in other key countries. that the number of unique patents is only a fraction of that. and the number of other countries is generally less than 20.
    so idcc itself acknowledges the importance of having patents filed in other countries.
    BUT IDCC DOES NOT FILE PATENT CLAIMS IN EVERY COUNTRY.
    so why in the world, would idcc expect the ITC to make nokia, huawei, and everyone else, sign agreements, for worldwide sales to every country.
    On the other hand, since IDCC patents are considered essential, they should be entitled to wordwide revenues.
    But as soon as you look at MFL clauses, and attitudes like "we will not accept less than what we want" when they agreed to license frand, I can see why everyone is balking.
    IDCC IS ITS OWN WORST ENEMY.
