Patents can be among a technology company's most valuable assets. And on the flip side, patent infringement has become a serious concern for technology companies, particularly as claims often involve settlements of hundreds of millions of dollars. For example, in 2005 Research in Motion settled an infringement case with NTP for $612 million and in 2009, Qualcomm settled with Broadcom for a stunning $891 million.
