InterDigital reacted to the decision by the Court of Appeals of the Federal Circuit to reject the company's appeal of the U.S. International Trade Commission's decision in the 337-TA-800 investigation, with CEO William Merritt stating, "We are disappointed by the Federal Circuit's decision, and will in all likelihood pursue the avenues for review that exist.
