Intellectual Ventures Gets Mixed Verdict In Motorola IP Row

By Jamie Santo (March 25, 2015, 5:27 PM EDT) -- A Delaware federal jury on Wednesday found that Motorola Mobility LLC had infringed one patent owned by Intellectual Ventures LLC but not another, wrapping up a second trial between the long-time foes over Motorola's smartphones.

The verdict returned by the eight-member panel determined that Motorola smartphones infringed U.S. Patent Number 7,810,144, which covers file transfers between devices, and rejected the mobile company's contention that the '144 patent was invalid.

But the jury found Motorola did not infringe on U.S. Patent Number 7,409,450, which allocates wireless bandwidth based on packet contents, and agreed that the patent was invalid for obviousness.
