Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

     On April 27, 2006, InterDigital Communications Corporation and its
wholly-owned subsidiary InterDigital Technology Corporation (together,
InterDigital) entered into agreements with Nokia Corporation (Nokia) resolving
various legal proceedings arising from the June 2005 ICC International Court of
Arbitration Tribunal Award under the January 1999 Patent License Agreement
between the parties (the PLA Proceedings) as well as Claim No HC04 C01952
instituted by Nokia in June 2004 in the High Court of Justice of England and
Wales, Chancery Division, Patents Court against InterDigital Technology
Corporation (UK 2G Proceedings) (collectively, the Agreements).

     Pursuant to the terms of the Agreements:

     o    On April 28, 2006 Nokia paid InterDigital US$253 Million.

     o    Effective upon receipt of payment, Nokia has a fully paid-up license
          from InterDigital covering worldwide sales of 2G TDMA-based products,
          consisting primarily of GSM/GPRS/EDGE terminal units and

     o    Effective upon receipt of payment, Nokia has a release from
          infringement liability from InterDigital for worldwide sales of 3G
          terminal units and infrastructure through April 26, 2006.

     o    The PLA Proceedings and the UK 2G Proceedings will be dismissed.

     o    In exchange for the dismissal of the UK 2G Proceedings, Nokia will
          receive a paid up license for single mode IS-95 products.

     o    The Patent License Agreement entered into by the parties on January
          29, 1999 was terminated.

     The foregoing description of the Agreements is a summary of the material
terms. Further description of the PLA Proceedings and UK 2G Proceedings is
reported in InterDigital Communications Corporation's Form 10-K for the year
ended December 31, 2005, filed March 14, 2006.

     Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

     Pursuant to the terms of the Agreements discussed under Item 1.01 above,
effective April 26, 2006, the Patent License Agreement entered into by
InterDigital and Nokia on January 29, 1999 (PLA) was terminated. The PLA, which
by its terms would have expired in December 2006, granted Nokia a worldwide,
generally non-transferable, royalty-bearing patent license on sales of 2G and 3G
terminal units and infrastructure. The PLA contained a "most favored licensee"
(MFL) clause which provided that Nokia's royalty obligations for sales of
covered products from January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2006 could be defined
through direct negotiation or by one or more patent license agreements with
designated major competitors. As a result of the termination of the PLA, Nokia's
MFL status ceases and Nokia's sales of 3G products after April 26, 2006 will be
unlicensed by InterDigital.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
Registrant has duly caused this Current Report on Form 8-K to be signed on its
behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
