Nokia v. HTC (2012, Germany)

From en.swpat.org
Jump to: navigation, search
Note: This article is about the trial in Mannheim. There is also a Nokia v. HTC case in Munich I Regional Court.[1]

In the ruling of Landgericht Mannheim on 5 August 2013, case number 7 O 201/12, the judges found that VP8 didn't violate Nokia's patent EP 1186177 B1.[2]


[edit] Where is the ruling?

I've searched the press coverage, including in German, but everyone just links to Google's tiny statement, the '177 patent, and Florian's blog. I also searched the court's website, to no avail: http://www.landgericht-mannheim.de

Anyone know how to get a copy of this ruling?

[edit] Multiples cases

According to Florian Mueller:

The dispute started last year when Nokia filed an ITC complaint against HTC and sued it in a United States district court (District of Delaware) and in three German courts; now there's also litigation pending in the UK.[3]
