Comments of Wall Street Journal on ITC questioned

On June 15, Jay Reiziss had a letter in the Wall Street Journal concerning the Qualcomm decision at the ITC which includes the text:

Your June 4 editorial "Chips, Ahoy" does a disservice to the U.S. International Trade Commission by portraying it as a bureaucracy that "covets vast new leverage over American industry."

In the case involving Broadcom and Qualcomm, the ITC found that Qualcomm's baseband processor chips infringe several of Broadcom's patents. Surely, the Journal can understand the need to protect this U.S. intellectual property. The issue with which the ITC is struggling mightily is the form of relief to give to Broadcom.
