CIV. P. 12(C)
InterDigital, Inc., InterDigital VC Holdings, Inc., InterDigital Patent Holdings, Inc., and
InterDigital Madison Patent Holdings SAS (collectively, “InterDigital” or “Plaintiffs”) accuse
Defendants Lenovo (United States) Inc., Motorola Mobility LLC, and Lenovo PC HK Limited
(“Lenovo HK”) of infringing five patents. Second Amended Complaint, ECF No. 64 ¶ 2. At
least three of these patents are directed to patent-ineligible subject matter under 35 U.S.C. § 101.
Namely, the claims of U.S. Pat. No. 9,173,054 (“the ’054 patent”), and U.S. Pat. No. 8,737,933
(“the ’933 patent”) embody the abstract idea of wirelessly transferring data (Alice, Step One).
The claims also lack an inventive concept sufficient to make the claims patent eligible (Alice,
Step Two). The claims of the third patent, U.S. Pat. No. 10,250,877 (“the ’877 patent”), embody
the abstract idea of encoding and decoding image data, where the abstract idea is achieved by
using mathematical equations. These claims also lack an inventive concept. Consequently,

The parties are concurrently filing a Joint Notice stipulating they will rely upon their
briefs and exhibits thereto associated with Lenovo PC HK Limited’s motion (ECF No. 69) in lieu
of refiling briefs. The grounds for this motion are set forth more fully in the briefs and exhibits

InterDigital and Concordia University Announce Research Collaboration on AI-enabled Immersive Media Delivery over 5G Networks
Company Release - 4/15/2024
WILMINGTON, Del., April 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDCC), a mobile, video and AI technology research and development company, and Concordia University’s Intelligent Next Generation Networking and Multimedia (IN2GM) Lab have announced a multi-year research and development collaboration offering PhD and master’s students an opportunity to explore tools that support AI-enabled end-to-end delivery of immersive media over 5G networks. Specifically, the collaboration supports research and innovation (R&I) into novel media delivery paradigms, approaches, prototype tools, and evaluation results. The research will also explore the development of systems that support the efficient delivery of high-quality, six degrees of freedom (6DoF), volumetric immersive media content over 5G networks.

InterDigital’s R&I Lab in Montréal is the home of the Multimedia System team and leads cutting edge research and engagement in global standards like MPEG, 3GPP and IETF. The Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science at Montréal-based Concordia University takes an innovative approach to experiential learning, research, and education, and its Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE) department is ranked among the top ten in Canada, and best in software engineering research in Canada according to CSRankings.

Together, InterDigital and Concordia University’s research collaboration aims to design an end-to-end immersive media transport system, addressing media packaging, media ingesting, media delivery, and media consumption, that abides by media coding standards set by IETF, MPEG, and 3GPP. The end-to-end immersive media delivery network is intended to be used for a variety of immersive applications in virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), XR (extended reality), and the metaverse.

“We are excited to announce this partnership with Concordia University to explore and create systems and tools to support the exciting intersection between AI and immersive media delivery protocols,” said Gaëlle Martin-Cocher, Senior Director at InterDigital. “Montréal remains a hub for next generation networks and AI/ML research with fast growing AI and immersive industries, so our collaboration with Concordia will leverage the excitement and expertise of the region to develop tools and solutions that support immersive content delivery worldwide.”

“IN2GM Lab at Concordia University is proud and excited to announce a groundbreaking partnership with InterDigital to pioneer the development of an end-to-end AI-enabled architecture for immersive media delivery over 5G networks,” said Professor Abdelhak Bentaleb, the head of Concordia’s AI IN2GM Lab. “Together, we're shaping the future of digital experiences, ushering in a new era of connectivity, creativity, and innovation.”

The program invites Concordia PhD and master’s students with expertise in networking and media delivery protocols, immersive media, next gen network systems and application, or AI/ML for networking and media delivery optimization to apply and contribute to the collaboration. All selected students will dedicate weekly research hours and interact with InterDigital’s Montréal R&I team.

Avanci Launches 4G Smart Meter patent licensing program
October 30, 2023 by Avanci

EDMI, a global leader in smart metering solutions, joins as first licensee
Avanci, the independent global leader in joint licensing solutions, today launched a program for 4G smart meters, with global smart metering leader EDMI as its first licensee.

Since 2016, Avanci has been transforming how patent licensing is done, through efficient, independent platforms which offer a convenient option to reduce transaction costs, enhance licensing efficiency, and improve predictability for all parties. This new Avanci program builds on the success of Avanci 4G Vehicle, which now has more than 145 million connected vehicles from over 95 automotive brands covered by an Avanci 4G Vehicle license.

Roy Kirsopp, CEO at EDMI, says: “As a leader in the global smart metering market, EDMI is unwavering in its commitment to customers to provide reliable and seamless smart metering solutions. We joined the Avanci 4G Smart Meter patent licensing program to assure our valued customers and partners that EDMI takes its licensing obligations seriously. An Avanci license is extremely valuable as it gives us authorised, licensed access to a broad range of 4G technology patent owners in a simple and efficient manner.”

Avanci 4G Smart Meter is Avanci’s first Internet of Things (IoT) program beyond the automotive sector. It simplifies the process of licensing essential cellular technologies for the growing global 4G smart meter market. Analyst firm Transforma Insights forecasts that more than 15 million 4G smart meters in scope of the program will be sold in 2023, with over 160 million to be sold during the next 10 years.

Marianne Frydenlund, Vice President and head of IoT licensing at Avanci, said: “We are delighted to launch our latest IoT program and to welcome EDMI, a leader in smart metering solutions, as our first 4G Smart Meter licensee. Our thanks to EDMI and all our partners for giving us their trust and confidence to deliver another efficient IoT licensing solution.”

An Avanci 4G Smart Meter license covers meters enabling 4G* connected meters. It offers a single license covering the 4G, 3G, and 2G essential patents of the 39 licensors in the program today, together with those of any licensors that join in future, at a fixed rate of $3 per meter, paid once for the lifetime of the meter.

Smart meter manufacturers and owners of cellular essential patents can email IOT@avanci.com to learn more about the program.

* Smart meters that communicate solely using the NB-IoT and/or LTE-M subsets of the 4G standard are not covered by the program.

About EDMI
EDMI Limited is one of the leading smart metering solutions providers in the world. EDMI is focused on designing, developing and manufacturing innovative and technologically advanced energy meters and metering systems for the global utility industry. EDMI’s metering portfolio includes a comprehensive range of premium quality metering products, advanced infrastructure and energy management systems.

Oppo must deposit pending royalties as interim security while its standard-essential patent dispute with InterDigital plays out in India, the Delhi High Court ruled today, February 21. The court directed Oppo to pay a sum amounting to approximately 23% of the counteroffer it made to InterDigital for licensing its SEPs.

Gamco, or any other member of this board, regarding Lenovo, what exactly are the numbers associated with this current dispute? What does Interdigital claim is owed? What does Lenovo believe is a FRAND rate? Has Lenova made any offer to settle? Has Interdigital given Lenovo a balance due? Over the years it seams we wait a long time to finally get paid after years of attorneys getting rich on all sides. Don't misunderstand, Interdigital is far better off than any other time in its history, but some of these arguments seem tired and oddly reminiscent of so many past cases. Is there no precedent here?

Where's our legal eagles that can chime in on this one? And in the end, what is the amount Interdigital is playing for with Lenovo and all others waiting for the outcomes of the upcoming hearings? What are the ultimate risks associated with the UK case? What is the ultimate reward from this case?

Would love to see a bit more of a summary of what's going on at this time as I haven't been as proactive as in the past at keeping up with all of the ongoing wranglings.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Lenovo confidentiality breaches represent "serious failings", says UK court in InterDigital dispute

Adam Houldsworth
04 April 2024

An English High Court decision has revealed that Lenovo committed several breaches of a confidentiality protocol relating to InterDigital’s third-party SEP licence agreements in the latest development of the much-watched SEP/FRAND dispute.

Nevertheless, the London court has granted Lenovo retrospective permission to use the confidential information in a second set of FRAND proceedings between the two parties, including in a fast-approaching hearing concerning a jurisdictional challenge by InterDigital.

This comes against the background of a multi-faceted, global set of disputes between the parties, which have great legal and strategic significance for the broader SEP licensing landscape. 

Lenovo’s breaches relate to information protected under a confidentiality protocol established during an initial round of UK litigation pertaining to the use of InterDigital’s 5G-era cellular SEP portfolio until the end of 2023.

That litigation produced a landmark global FRAND ruling by the High Court of England and Wales in March 2023 – the UK’s second ever such decision. The ruling set a rate favourable to Lenovo, rejected key aspects of InterDigital’s rate-setting methodology and found the US patentee to have been an unwilling licensor. 

InterDigital is challenging that ruling in an appeal whose outcome will have profound implications for SEP strategies around the world. It is scheduled to be heard by the Court of Appeal on 10 June this year. 

Lenovo’s breaches of the confidentiality protocol were committed as part of a second round of UK global licence rate-setting litigation, which the Chinese company initiated on 23 September 2023. 

The Chinese implementer filed a UK High Court action seeking either a declaration of invalidity and non-essentiality against two of InterDigital’s 4G SEPs, or a global FRAND rate determination for InterDigital’s cellular SEP portfolio for the period 2024-2028. It also requested that a global rate be set for InterDigital’s broader portfolio of SEPs and non-standard-essential patents. 

This defensive or ‘free-standing’ global FRAND rate-setting request was filed alongside a similar action filed by Lenovo in a parallel worldwide SEP dispute with Ericsson. Indeed, as a recent IAM interview with Lenovo’s Chief IP Officer John Mulgrew showed, the company has been persuaded of the merits of UK litigation by the favourable March 2023 ruling. 

In contrast, InterDigital, having seemingly lost its appetite for UK global FRAND decisions, has filed a jurisdictional challenge, based partly on the grounds that Lenovo is seeking a declaration relating to some non-ETSI SEPs and non-standard-essential patents that are not subject to FRAND commitments. The hearing for this jurisdictional challenge is set to take place in a few weeks, on 24 April.

Lenovo believes that its case in that jurisdictional challenge will be strengthened by use of third-party patent licence information that was used under the protection of a confidentiality protocol in the first dispute. In late March, it applied for permission to make use of that information.

This brought a serious issue to the court’s attention, however. By the Chinese company’s admission, it had already inadvertently misused that information, in breach of confidentiality provisions, on several occasions since the initiation of the September legal action. Lenovo therefore asked for retrospective permission to use the confidential information in the ongoing case. 

Handing down his decision on the matter, Mr Justice Zacaroli stated that there “have been serious failing on the part of Lenovo”. These included Lenovo’s inclusion of confidential information in its original September 2023 pleading, its use of the third-party licences as part of its strategic review for the second dispute and its use of unredacted licences and an unredacted version of the first global FRAND ruling in its disclosure for the second proceeding. 

Zacaroli J also found that the confidentiality protocol had been breached by the sharing of information with Lenovo’s German lawyers, who were outside the confidentiality ring. Moreover, affected third parties had not been informed of the breach in a timely manner, and although Lenovo’s lawyers had not intentionally misused the information, the company “ought to have come to court at a much earlier stage” after the breaches were brought to its attention in November 2023. 

InterDigital requested that Lenovo’s retroactive request be rejected. Otherwise, its interests would be prejudiced, it argued, adding that Lenovo and its lawyers could not be trusted. 

However, Zacaroli J ruled that need to encourage compliance had to be balanced against his findings that there had been no substantial prejudice to the interests of InterDigital or the third parties involved, and Lenovo had not gained any significant benefit from the breaches. Moreover, he reasoned, Lenovo would have a good chance of introducing the information at a later stage in proceedings, regardless. It was in the interests of justice to allow the confidential information to be weighed in the jurisdictional ruling. 

As such, Lenovo was granted retrospective permission to use the information in its original and amended particulars of claim, and in pleading those matters, as well as in the forthcoming jurisdiction challenge. 

For its breaches, however, Lenovo has been ordered to pay £80,000 to cover both parties’ costs relating to its request. 

The jurisdiction hearing will determine which claims, if any, Lenovo is allowed to proceed with. The resolution of those questions will also trigger a hearing on Lenovo’s request for an expedited FRAND trial. 

Some other important questions relating to the case have already been resolved. On 21 March, the High Court rejected InterDigital’s request to stay proceedings pending developments at the Munich Regional Court. It also rejected Lenovo’s request for an interim global licence – based on the March 2023 decision – pending the full UK global FRAND ruling. Such a provisional licence would have only slight value in English proceedings, the court found, because Lenovo is not under the threat of an injunction and InterDigital has not sought interim payments. 

The global context

However, all of Lenovo’s UK actions against InterDigital must be understood as part of a wider context in which the US patentee has asserted cellular SEPs and other patents in several other jurisdictions. 

In Germany, for example, InterDigital asserted several 4G and 5G patents at the Munich Regional Court in September of last year, immediately before Lenovo’s UK filing. A hearing regarding one of the asserted patents is set to take place on 18 April.

Also in September 2023, InterDigital filed US legal actions at the International Trade Commission and the District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, concerning five US patents (which are not subject to FRAND obligations) relating to the AV1 and VP9 video codec specifications. The ITC has instituted InterDigital’s complaint, setting a hearing for June-July 2024. 

InterDigital had also asserted SEPs relating to the HEVC video codec standard in various jurisdictions, though this part of the dispute was resolved by a licensing deal in late 2023.

According to InterDigital’s recent annual report, the company’s 2023 patent revenue (totalling $549.6 million) included $150.1 million (mostly back-payments) from Lenovo, comprised of payments relating to the March 2023 cellular SEP decision and the later HEVC agreement.

The 2027 notes were already convertible last quarter, they are convertible again this quarter because the stock price remained above the threshold for 20 days in the previous quarter. If the stock price drops and stays below the threshold they won’t be convertible the next quarter. Short selling would be one thing the note holders could use to increase their rate of return amongst other options.

I was waiting for an 8k saying the 2024 Notes had been settled not one saying that the 2027 notes are still convertible. I must have been right about converting the 2027 notes early not benefiting the note holders since none seem to have been converted yet even though they are significantly in the money.

InterDigital Announces Convertibility of 3.50% Senior Convertible Notes Due 2027
Company Release - 4/4/2024
WILMINGTON, Del., April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDCC), a mobile and video technology research and development company, announced today that, pursuant to the terms of the Indenture governing its 3.50% Senior Convertible Notes due 2027 (the “Notes”), the Notes are convertible during its calendar quarter ending June 30, 2024. The current conversion rate of the Notes is 12.9041 shares of InterDigital’s Common Stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes.

Upon the conversion of any Notes, InterDigital will pay cash up to the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be converted, and will pay cash, shares of its Common Stock or a combination of cash and shares of its Common Stock for any conversion obligation in excess of the aggregate principal amount being converted, if any, at InterDigital’s election, as set forth in the Indenture governing the Notes.

At the time InterDigital issued the Notes, InterDigital entered into call spread transactions that together were designed to have the economic effect of reducing the net number of shares that will be issued in the event of conversion of the Notes by, in effect, increasing the conversion price of the Notes from InterDigital’s economic standpoint from $77.49 to $106.35. Refer to Footnote 10 of the Financial Statements from InterDigital’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 for more information.

China: InterDigital vows FRAND practices to end probe
BY CPI | FEBRUARY 23, 2014


US wireless technologies firm InterDigitial has reportedly offered to charge non-discriminatory royalties to Chinese companies to license its technology in efforts to suspend China’s antitrust probe into the company.

InterDigitial filed to suspend China’s National Development and Reform Commission’s investigation into InterDigitial following allegations that the US vendor is abusing its dominant market position by charging unfair royalties to Chinese firms for licensing its wireless network and product patents.

The company was alleged to have charged up to one-hundred times higher fees to Chinese companies than to Apple.

Now, reports say the company has vowed to license those patents on terms known as FRAND, or fair, reasonable and non-discriminator.

FISH, read the explanation on the Form 4 and you'll have your answer. Nothing nefarious, just SOP at Interdigital.

From the Form 4:

"Explanation of Responses:
(1) The transaction reported reflects the withholding of restricted stock units in satisfaction of the reporting person's tax liability. The restricted stock units were granted to the reporting person on March 31, 2023 pursuant to the company's 2017 Equity Incentive Plan in accordance with the company's long-term compensation program and vested on March 31, 2024, together with accrued dividend equivalents.

After an 8.5% haircut yesterday, I guess, IMO, and like I said back on March 19, it may truly be back to the fundamentals for IDCC or its back to the 'shorts' game of having their way with the stock price.
Well it seems like now most of the upward gyrations of the IDCC stock price involving the convertibles notes are now over, so now its back to the fundamentals of the business, signing new and renewing licenses. This unfortunately has to include positive litigation outcomes. Links to My3sons and Gamco's posts of what would help move the stock price higher. I am hopeful for these and other positive outcomes sooner than later.

If Tai Liani is the analyst at BoA that lowered his target, you can bet that he had marching orders on this one. The timing does seem questionable, but it serves to make him look like a genius if only for a few days. He was typically on the wrong side of the trade with Interdigital. If I recall, he begrudgingly came around with a higher price target only after several embarrassing events tied to company conference calls and his lack of awareness of company successes.

I'm thinking BoA's analyst is just a front man on today's action. Someone needs IDCC to be cheaper at least in the short term.

BoA downgraded
Solid growth in recent quarters; LT growth remains murky

InterDigital's stock appreciated 47% in the last 12 months, mostly on a few consecutive quarters of solid growth. Growth was driven by new licensing agreements with Lenovo, Panasonic, and others, as well as 162% YoY growth in non-recurring revenues, which are mainly related to catch up payments that are one-time in nature. Going forward, we flag risks to the 2024 estimates and forecast negative growth rates in 2025. To put the past performance into perspective, in 2023 revenues grew 20% overall, yet excluding the contribution of one-time, non-recurring revenues, topline only grew 1% YoY. We therefore downgrade our rating to Underperform from Buy, tweak our estimates, and reduce our PO to $100 on 9x FY25E EV/FCF, vs. prior $140 (13x).

High penetration & reliance on recurring smartphone revs

Growth is highly dependent on the recurring smartphone royalties, which comprise 85% of total recurring revenues. Management believes recurring revenues from wireless will grow from $408mn in 2023 to ~$500mn over the long-run, but the company's largest revenue growth has been generated by the non-recurring portion, or catchup payments with previously unlicensed smartphone vendors. This brings up two risk factors: first, the timing of realizing catch-up revenues is highly unpredictable. Second, the inherent growth of the core smartphone segment is almost non-existent and management's growth assumption is dependent on its ability to reach agreements with unlicensed Chinese handset makers, which represents another highly unpredictable factor. There are other long term growth opportunities and management expects Consumer Electronics licensing to grow from $60mn to $150mn, and flags potential growth in IoT, automotive, and AI licensing, which are all areas that may take time to materialize/ramp.

Lumpy revenue recognition and lack of visibility into P&L

We highlight near-term opportunities to reach agreements with likes of Oppo and Vivo, as well as smaller growth opportunities within adjacent markets like CE and IoT, but timing is uncertain and the magnitude could prove smaller vs. the last 12 months. Management included a ~$150mn catchup revenue assumption in the 1Q24 revenue guidance, vs. $141mn in FY23. We believe some of this assumption is based on the expectations that the Samsung renewal may resolve in 2024, yet we flag risk to estimates, as the guidance locks in a certain cadence of deal (agreement) flow, which could prove slower to materialize. Lastly, looking beyond 2024, our model calls for a decline in revenue and EPS growth in 2025, down -8% YoY and -20% YoY, respectively.
