06.06.16

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 06, 2016 -- ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRKR), a developer, manufacturer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced today that its wholly-owned German subsidiary, ParkerVision GmbH, has filed a complaint against LG Electronics Deutschland GmbH, a German subsidiary of LG Electronics, Inc., for the infringement of the German part of European Patent 1 206 831. The complaint, which was filed in Munich Regional Court, seeks injunctive relief and damages for infringing devices being offered, brought to market, used or introduced in Germany. The accused products include the LG G Flex 2, LG G3 and LG G5. The law firm of Noerr LLP is representing ParkerVision in this action. Noerr LLP is a multinational law firm of over 500 professionals, which has substantial and longstanding expertise in handling complex German, European and international patent litigation.

"The decision to pursue our rights overseas was made following significant effort to reach equitable business arrangements for the use of our intellectual property," stated Jeffrey Parker, CEO of ParkerVision. "We have reached the point where international legal action is appropriate to defend our intellectual property rights abroad in order to protect the investment our shareholders have made in our patented assets. Our preference is to negotiate arms-length transactions for the use of ParkerVision's valuable intellectual property; however, we must be, and are, willing to pursue our rights through the legal system where necessary. Our goal remains to establish ParkerVision as a global presence for licensing and development of products based on its wireless technologies."
