Although Wynnewood is given as Poptent's HQ on its website, it seems from what I'm reading that its headquarters may be moving to the LA area, although there is no official confirmation of that at this time.
Update: Mark Schoneveld of Poptent writes in to say: "Actually - we'll be staying here in Wynnewood. Our West Coast office is definitely expanding, but we're growing here, too".


TruePosition receives $48 million payment in Patent Infringement suit

Wireless technology company TruePosition of Berwyn has received a $48 million payment from CommScope in settlement of TruePosition's patent infringement suit against CommScope's Andrews LLC subsidiary, according to a CommScope Form 8-K filing with the SEC.

CommScope paid up after a Federal Court of Appeals denied its appeal of the trial court's decision in the case and turned down a request for a rehearing. Andrews is still fighting TruePosition in another court case over disputed royalty obligations.

TruePosition provides wireless locator technologies using cell tower triangulation and other means. TruePosition is a subsidiary of Liberty Media. CommScope, based in Hickory NC, was spun off
from Horsham-based General Instrument (now part of Motorola) in 1997.
