The opinion overturned the district court’s ruling for the FTC, and handed Qualcomm a resounding victory.
Garrard and Sophie provide an overview of the Ninth Circuit’s decision, discuss some of the Court’s key holdings, and offer thoughts about the decision’s implications for patent holders, companies doing business with patent holders, and dynamic technology markets in general.
