In 2011, ParkerVision, Inc (NASDAQ:PRKR) had filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm and later revealed that it had sought $500M in damages. The suit had been filed for 6 patent-infringements and the company was also seeking injunctive relief for the alleged infringement of radio frequency receiver-related patents. There was also an issue of down-conversion of the electromagnetic-signals.
