ParkerVision Receives Favorable Markman Order in Patent Infringement Action Against Qualcomm

ParkerVision Receives Favorable Markman Order in Patent Infringement Action
Against Qualcomm

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc.
(Nasdaq:PRKR) announced today that on February 20, 2013, the United States
District Court for the Middle District of Florida issued its patent claim
construction ruling, or "Markman Order", in the ongoing patent infringement
action between ParkerVision and Qualcomm, Inc (NYSE:QCOM).

In a Markman Order, the presiding district court in a patent infringement case
sets out the meaning of certain disputed patent claim language present in the
patents in suit. This court interpretation is then applied during the action
in the determinations of infringement and validity. The Markman Order can be a
significant factor in the progress and outcome of patent infringement
litigation.

In the recently issued Markman Order, the Court adopted ParkerVision's
position as to the proper interpretation of most of the key terms in dispute
in the litigation.

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ParkerVision stated,
"We are pleased with the Court's Markman Order and we are confident in our
position concerning Qualcomm's infringement of the patent claims at issue in
this case. While the outcome of any litigation cannot be predicted, we
believe the Court's Markman Order is another significant step towards the
successful resolution of this litigation."

The litigation, filed in July 2011, involves Qualcomm's development and sale
of certain of its products that ParkerVision believes infringe numerous claims
from six patents owned by ParkerVision.
