I wonder, what is the likelihood of a successful decision for Freescale? How many types and what kind of numbers of TV sets are we talking about here? The article does not say if there were any behind the scenes discussions between Freescale and any of the named companies, it this because it did not happen or was tried and failed. Many interesting questions, I hope for a followup article as details become available.

Motorola/freescale have/has put lots of money over many years in IP. The trick is knowing which trigger to pull. They could certainly use an infusion of cash...

Any more detail about what those companies has infringed? It will be an interesting result if finally Freescale win the law sue as those companies are really key suppliers in TV sectors. Will Freescale then take back the lost share?
