Using that patent portfolio in court cases appears to be as important to InterDigital as licensing its technology to mobile companies—you might call it the carrot (develop new wireless standards and technology) and stick (sue anyone who violates your intellectual property) approach to innovation. Presently, InterDigital is suing Nokia, Huawei and ZTE for violation of its patents, seeking a ban on import of their products.

Oh technology.
