You probably won’t know the name, but you most certainly use its technology on a daily basis. InterDigital is a pioneering company that helped develop WCDMA, 3G and HSDPA during its 50-year history. It counts former Apple CEO Gil Amelio as one of its directors, but the only time you’ll ever hear its name is when it’s embroiled in litigation.
Either because it’s suing, or being sued for licensing fees in the complex, murky world of wireless technologies, it’s easy to get the idea that InterDigital is a patent troll. A name that, both Nokia and most recently, Huawei have barely stopped short of throwing at the company.
But what’s it like being painted as the villain in the wireless business pantomime? Company president and CEO William “Bill” Merritt took the time to answer some of our questions, talk about what the company actually does, what’s in the future and why they definitely aren’t a patent troll.

Before I let this devolve into a debate about the difference between geek and nerd, let’s move on to the evidence. You, dear reader can decide for yourself where on the geek scale I belong.
