Qualcomm seeks patents reversal

From Times Staff and Wires

Qualcomm Inc. asked a U.S. appeals court to reinstate its right to enforce patents for technology to transmit DVD-quality video over satellites, wireless devices and the Internet.

Qualcomm, the world’s largest maker of chips that run mobile phones, lost a court case in which it accused Broadcom Corp. of infringing two patents related to an industry standard to compress high-definition video. U.S. District Judge Rudi Brewster in San Diego said that Qualcomm lost the right to enforce those patents because it never told the standards-setting body about them.
