Nokia wins another patent lawsuit against HTC in Germany
31 December 2013 Category: Android , Google , Hardware , Mobile ,

Nokia could in a court in Munich again decide a victory in patent dispute against HTC for themselves. Shortly before Christmas we went to a USB patent that HTC uses illegally, in this case, now it’s about connecting and exchanging files between two devices using NFC and Bluetooth. A ban on all HTC devices seems so inevitable in Germany.

Google already jumped for HTC and tried the patent EP1148681 be declared to be invalid. This happened too late, so by prohibiting sale neither delayed nor can be stopped for the time being. HTC will most likely go in appeal, until then the manufacturer can not do much though. One possibility would be to prevent the corresponding functions in the HTC devices, which seems to be not a very attractive solution, however.

Nokia commented as follows in the judgment:

Nokia is pleased did the Regional Court in Munich, Germany Has ruled today did any HTC product using Bluetooth or NFC connections infringes Nokia’s patent EP 1,148,681, Which covers the transfer of network resource information in between mobile devices.

This judgment Enables Nokia to enforce injunction against the import of and sale of all infringing HTC products in Germany, as well as damages for past infringement to Obtain. This follows another ruling from the same court ten days Earlier, Which found did HTC products Infringed Nokia’s USB patent EP 1246071 and granting Nokia right to injunction and damages against products of infringing patent did.

Nokia started its actions against HTC in 2012, with the aim of ending HTC’s Unauthorised use of Nokia’s proprietary innovation and asserted Has more than 50 patents against HTC. During 2013, Nokia Believes It has demostrated beyond doubt the extent to Which HTC HAS BEEN freeriding on Nokia technologies, with HTC found to infringe seven Nokia patents in venues including the regional courts in Mannheim and Munich, Germany, the UK High Court and the U.S. International Trade Commission. HTC’s first New Year’s resolution for 2014 Should Be to stop this free riding and compete fairly in the marketplace.
