    Tampa, please refresh... weren't there QCOM emails that were damaging to their case that were not allowed into evidence? If so, do you think they could be admitted in a retrial and strengthen the case for infringement?

    Seems to me if there was any concern by PRKR over the points in this article, that they would not still be holding out for a satisfactory settlement with QCOM but would have caved by now. And, why would the judge push the litigating parties to negotiate a settlement if he plans to render such pointless with a finding to fully nullify the jury's ruling for PRKR. Further, it seems that by filing the second suit, PRKR sees themselves confidently leveraging the first suit and its conclusions, not shying away from it. I don't pretend to be a lawyer or RF engineer, just using some common sense. I guess we will know in a few more days what the judge is really thinking. My bet, until then, remains on McKool and PRKR.

    Hmmm... what if PRKR has a 3rd or more suits to file still? What if there are others out there stealing its technology still to be joined? What if the technology is used in even more devices than just the smart phones and tablets currently conceived (e.g. the mushrooming list of cell and WIFI connected devices in home, car, business, planes, boats or on persons)? [Won't even talk about military, etc. apps] How many more billions could PRKR be worth someday? This could be part of QCOM's motivation to fight hard... :)

  • Today, PRKR filed a second lawsuit against QCOM & its customer, HTC, for continued and added patent infringements. This follows PRKR's $170+ million victory over QCOM last year. Today, a judge ruled he planned to raise the royalty computation of the first trial if QCOM and PRKR don't settle on their own in the next 30 days. Not good for QCOM.

    Great recap of the new lawsuit by Bloomberg: Now talking $20 chips vs. $4 chips in the first trial. First trial was 2nd biggest 2013 patent damages, only behind the Apple-Samsung trial.

    A few more nice quotes:
    During the trial, ParkerVision showed jurors e-mails in which Qualcomm executives called the inventions “revolutionary” and said it would be “very difficult for anybody to ever use this technique without stepping on” a ParkerVision patent. The two companies held licensing talks that failed in the late 1990s.

    The company is seeking royalties dating back to 1999, Parker said in an interview last year. The Qualcomm court victory meant that “this time we don’t have to convince people to use our technology,” he said. “We just have to convince them to not use it without paying for it.”

    ParkerVision has one of the highest percentages of short-sellers, who own 27 percent of the company’s 96 million shares outstanding, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

    The company is seeking royalties dating back to 1999, Parker said in an interview last year. The Qualcomm court victory meant that “this time we don’t have to convince people to use our technology,” he said. “We just have to convince them to not use it without paying for it.”

    Hearing tomorrow

    Unless the judge/PRKR has arranged for stock trading to be suspended during regular trading hours prior to a ruling, I would think the judge might hold off on any substantive actions until after the 4 PM market close. If so, maybe the hearing is scheduled for later in the day?
