INTERDIGITAL ANNOUNCES FILING OF OPPOSITION APPEALS IN GERMAN PATENT OFFICE

 KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- InterDigital Technology Corporation (InterDigital Technology), a subsidiary of InterDigital Communications Corporation (AMEX: IDC), announced today it has learned that Philips Patentverwaltung Gmbh, Standard Electrik Lorenz (Alcatel) and Siemens Aktiengesellschaft have filed an appeal to the German Federal Patent Court.
 The appeal was filed after the German Patent Office decided in favor of InterDigital Technology, and against Philips, Alcatel and Siemens, in an opposition proceeding challenging the validity of InterDigital Technology's basic German Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) system patent. Any decision of the German Federal Patent Court will be subject to subsequent appeals.
 Robert S. Bramson, president and chief executive officer of InterDigital Technology, stated, "We believe that our victory in the German Patent Office will be confirmed by the German Patent Court and that as a result, our basic German TDMA patent will be strengthened. As previously stated, it is our belief that this German Patent is essential to GSM, the European digital wireless telecommunications standard. InterDigital Technology is interested in granting royalty-bearing, non-exclusive licenses under its portfolio of over 450 domestic and foreign TDMA patents and patent applications."
