ITC to Investigate Nokia Claims of Patent Infringement by HTC

Published on:

The USA International Trade Commission (ITC) agreed last week to launch an investigation into Nokia's second batch of allegations that HTC had infringed six of its patents.

The ITC has the power to order an import ban into the USA of devices that infringe patents, although due to the timescale, by the time an import ban is implemented, the infringing products are usually discountenanced.

In this case, Nokia is seeking import bans on the HTC One, Droid DNA and the Evo 4G LTE.

Nokia also has a patent lawsuit against HTC pending in a Californian court.

"HTC has shown no intention to end its practices," Nokia said when filing that lawsuit, "instead it has tried to shift responsibility to its suppliers. We have therefore taken these further steps to hold HTC accountable for its actions."
