what might be interesting is for the US Gov't to purchase these patents and allow free usage to companies. US can decide if they want to provide free for all countries or determine what access costs.....odd thought given the trade conflicts and Huawei issues....
yep, another way to be disruptive to the next cell standard. It would have been interesting to see if Qualcomm did not have a strangle hold on many of the cell patents....tough to go back in time to see how this market would have been affected by this change.....Intel could open it up and maybe they will. either option would disrupt the status quo from a 'one vendor' IP owner....Maybe Intel will just open them up? That would be disruptive.
This is the sign of a CFO being a CEO. Fiscal responsibility. I am 100% behind this new guy, absolutely.
It makes much more sense for Apple to buy the patents and hire the people, not buy the business. the problem is that, by all accounts the business is negative value, horribly dysfunctional.Weren't they originally planning to sell this business to Apple? Presumably the sale would include the IP. Maybe they didn't like the price?
