Summary:
On December 1, 2008, the Federal Circuit upheld a district court ruling that Qualcomm waived its right to enforce patents for video compression technology developed by members of the Joint Video Team (“JVT”) standards-setting organization. Qualcomm participated in the JVT and had an obligation to disclose patents that “reasonably might be necessary” to practice the H 264 standard. Because of failure to disclose patents to the Standard Setting Organization, the Federal Circuit decided that Qualcomm waived its right to enforce video compression patents.
