Jury Finds Qualcomm Guilty Of Infringement Of ParkerVision Patents

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR) ("ParkerVision" and "the Company"), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today announced that a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida found Qualcomm Incorporated guilty of direct and indirect infringement of ParkerVision patents. That same jury also found ParkerVision's patents valid in light of the alleged prior art references identified by Qualcomm during the course of the trial.

The trial, which commenced on October 7, 2013, is being held in two phases. The first phase, which addressed invalidity and direct and indirect infringement, ended today with the jury finding in ParkerVision's favor.   The second phase of the trial will commence immediately with the same jury, and will determine the scope of damages awarded and whether Qualcomm is also guilty of willful patent infringement. With a finding of willful patent infringement, a judge has the authority to enhance damages awarded by the jury by up to three times.

ParkerVision Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Parker, commented, "We are extremely pleased with the jury's verdict in this case and we look forward to presenting our damages and willfulness arguments over the coming days."
