InterDigital Faces Alice Challenges, Publishes Royalty Rates

This month, Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) renewed an Alice motion attacking six of the eight wireless communications patents that InterDigital, Inc. (IDCC), through a group of subsidiaries, has asserted in its sole active US case. The defendants’ accused products are cellular-enabled Motorola and Lenovo devices practicing certain standards (e.g., HSUPA, LTE, and WCDMA). The abstract ideas to which the current motion alleges IDCC’s claims are patent-ineligibly directed range from “requesting additional bandwidth when the previously allocated bandwidth is insufficient” to “transmitting channel quality measurements in a rotating pattern of time intervals”. The challenge comes as InterDigital has published information detailing its “handset rate structure, portfolio data, [and] licensing principles” as part of a “new phase of transparency”.
