We recently heard that Nokia won an injunction against HTC in the Netherlands for their HTC One smartphone, HTC then announced that the injunction was against the manufacturer of a microphone used in the HTC One and not HTC.
Now Nokia has stepped up their lawsuit against HTC and is targeting the HTC One Again, Nokia are basically saying that HTC are trying to shift the blame on to their suppliers.
“We began actions against HTC in 2012 to end the unauthorised use of our proprietary innovations and technologies. Since then, despite the German courts confirming infringements of Nokia patents in HTC products, HTC has shown no intention to end its practices, instead it has tried to shift responsibility to its suppliers. We have therefore taken these further steps to hold HTC accountable for its actions.”
It will be interesting to see what happens, and if HTC are found to be infringing on Nokia patents, this could have an effect on the sales of their new HTC One smartphone.
