SiRF's down!

Of the CAFC decision on 12 April 2010 in SIRF Technology v. ITC a Citi analyst is quoted:

"We believe this appeal was simply an attempt by SiRF to restore its reputation."

SIRF has been acquired by CSR and the opponent in the case is Broadcom.

SIRF tried a standing argument somewhat like Microsoft did against Lucent, but SIRF lost at the CAFC, failing its burden of proof on the standing issue.

The "next step" is that a 2006 patent case between SiRF and Broadcom will become unstayed and proceed.
