Talk about tough luck. For the second time in as many month's, Qualcomm
has been flat out denied
by the courts as it has attempted to stall a ban
on its chips over the Broadcom patent disputes. This time around, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit "dismissed Qualcomm's request for a stay of the ban, saying that it can't consider a stay until a presidential review period is over." Furthermore, this harsh news (for Qualcomm, at least) comes just days after being evaded by Verizon
, and if that wasn't enough, the EU's stamp of approval on DVB-H
could put MediaFlo
in a world of hurt. Hang in there Qualcomm, all's not lost... yet.
