[Appealed from E.D. Va., Senior Judge Payne]
In WiAV Solutions LLC v. Motorola, Inc., No. 10-1266 (Fed. Cir. Dec. 22, 2010), the Federal Circuit ruled that the district court had erred in concluding that the preexisting third-party rights to sublicense at issue stripped WiAV Solutions LLC (“WiAV”) of constitutional standing to assert seven patents-in-suit owned by Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (collectively “the Mindspeed patents”) and under which WiAV held an exclusive license in a specific field of use.
