Qualcomm-Nokia Patent Trial Delayed

The judge gave no reason for placing the trial on hold, but the delay gave rise to hopes that Qualcomm and Nokia are trying to reach a settlement on their licensing agreements.

For the second time in recent days, a trial scheduled to begin March 5 involving Qualcomm intellectual property has been delayed. The most recent incident came Tuesday when a U.S. International Trade Commission judge delayed a case involving a patent dispute between Qualcomm and Nokia.

The judge, Robert J. Barton Jr., gave no reason for placing the trial on hold, but the delay gave rise in legal circles to hopes that Qualcomm and Nokia are trying to reach a settlement on their licensing agreements.

Qualcomm has a large wireless patent portfolio, and several firms prominent in wireless technology have complained that Qualcomm's IP restrictions are overly severe. Qualcomm and Nokia have been suing each other for several months over intellectual property matters.

Just last week, Qualcomm and Broadcom agreed to settle some patent claims in another case that had been scheduled to go to trial March 5.
