Apple versus Interdigital
Manufacturer unknown technology which has higher profit than Apple.
A small producer and discreet communications technology is the most profitable company in the United States, although it is completely unknown to the public. It was founded in 1972 and has has a net profit of $ 937,255 per employee, more than Apple.
The only things they produce are interdigital hardware design and legal actions, notes the Huffington Post. Technologies of interdigital products are everywhere around us and used by everyone.
ournalists from Huffington say though interdigital not be called an ogre of patents. In contrast to other companies that deal only this, buying patents and then suing people and companies that use them.
The company employs 200 engineers whose research work earned patents worth billions of dollars. Interdigital prototype which then shows the electronics industry partners, like Alcatel-Lucent, which they then incorporate into their own products.
Interdigital register these patents, but they sell. In 2012, he sold 1,700 patents to Intel for 375 million dollars, which led to its shares climb 27% in a single day, as the market speculated that the rest has patents that could be worth as much.
In 2011, the company registered a steep climb 70% in stock, when its leaders announced that is for sale, and rumors announcing that Apple and Google were walking to buy to take advantage of the rich heritage patents. Eventually, the sale has not been done.
Using this package of patents in court is just as important as selling its technology interdigital by mobile phone companies.
Company sue anything that violates intellectual property rights.
At this point, Interdigital has lawsuits against Nokia, Huawei and ZTE for illegal use of its patents, following ban on importation of their products in the States.
However, this desire could not go anywhere. A similar case, in which Apple had sued Samsung closed with a draw after President Obama opposed the banning imports of old Apple to take effect.
Who tracks offer jobs Interdigital published on the website or see the dual nature of the company. They are usually looking for hardware engineers and managers patents.
While the company seeks a buyer, registered gains per employee shows that the only thing more profitable than separate inventions or processes separately to do both at the same time, journalists writing in the Huffington Post.
Board, however, wants to know what to expect in the near future if the company's plans come and revolutionary new products that would keep the company growing.
