hakey writes: The ITC said today Garmin isn’t violating Pioneer’s patent rights because Pioneer didn’t fulfill legal requirements of having a domestic industry for the underlying technology. Google, Hewlett-Packard, and Cisco Systems supported Garmin by calling on a limit to ITC cases in which the patent owner doesn’t make a product. A broad interpretation of licensing as an industry “rewards financial speculation and mere patent ownership over the kind of jobs the statute was meant to protect and upon which this country’s future will depend,” the three technology companies said in a May 24 filing with the agency.
