ParkerVision's Patent Portfolio Continues to Rank Among the Top 25 Most
Influential in the Wireless Sector According to The Patent Board(R)
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc.
(Nasdaq:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions
for wireless applications, today announced that its patent portfolio once
again ranked among the Top 25 companies in the telecom and communications
industry according to an analysis conducted by The Patent Board that appeared
in the November 11, 2013 edition of The Wall Street Journal.
The Patent Board, the leading independent provider of best practices research,
tools and metrics for patent analysis and intellectual property investment,
tracks and analyzes innovation, movement, and the business value of patent
assets across all industries. Its tri-annual rankings on the telecom and
communications industry are based on a comprehensive review of the quantity
and quality of a company's patents, including a detailed analysis of the
technology's science strength, industry impact and research intensity.
ParkerVision earned the highest score among the top 50 companies in both the
13-week and 5-year cumulative science strength scores and ranked second among
the top 50 companies in research intensity and industry impact.
With a worldwide portfolio of 236 patents, including 25 granted this year,
ParkerVision's performance on the Patent Scorecard marks the latest objective
acknowledgement of the Company's innovations for wireless technology
solutions. Last month, an Orlando, Florida jury determined that Qualcomm
Incorporated had directly and indirectly infringed four of the Company's
patents and awarded ParkerVision $172.7 million in damages for the
unauthorized use of its technology in some of Qualcomm's best-selling products
in the United States.
"We are pleased to once again be recognized as a leading innovator in the
telecom and communications industry," said Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of ParkerVision. "This latest recognition by The Patent
Board continues to validate the value and merit of our patent portfolio.We
believe the strength of our patent portfolio, coupled with our recent court
victory, paves the way for ParkerVision to become an active and rightful
participant in the wireless market."
