It sounds like Sonics did invest in their R&D and then protected that R&D with IP. Sonics has made "multiple attempts to negotiate a licensing deal with Arteris starting in 2009" because Arteris is allegedly building off the R&D developed by Sonics prior to Arteris being founded. If a company invents something, then they have the right to defend it.

True the company has every right to defend its invention but its unfortunate that companies spend a lot of amount protecting their IP rather than invest it in R&D.

Interesting. We are living in the era of LAWYERS. Engineering is dying because of these lay school graduates.
