Shutting down the STM/NOK/TXN alliance seems to be the motive for the suit.

This is my take. Something about this whole thing does not add up. While I can't say exactly what it is, I have the feeling QCOM is going after a bee with a shotgun. Yes the bee can hurt, but the shotgun is going to do far more damage.

Whatever we speculated on this thread about the TI-QCOM deal, do we really think sophisticated folks at Samsung or otherwise could not put 2+2 together and come up with 4 re: the zero royalty idea. I mean would QCOM like to be paying TI a royalty for it use of its DSP rights?

I think this has to do with TI disclosing or even doing business with a company (STM) that is not a licensee and that has already declared that it would not pay royalties to QCOM.

Here is a question for our thread legal beagles. Does QCOM get discovery rights in a suit like this? Could QCOM be using the disclosure issue to get at what it suspects are other bad things TI has done like disclosing proprietary information to STM?
