InterDigital loses more than patent case against Nokia, Huawei, ZTE

Mobile patent suit against InterDigital Inc., puts Nokia, Huawei and ZTE Corp in the clear

Although Nokia may not be the leader in the smartphone arena, the tech manufacturer has won a number of patent cases this past year that has put them in the spotlight and helped them achieve substantial settlements of money and recognition. The latest company to fall victim to Nokia’s patent-infringement claims is InterDigital Inc., who fell to its lowest profits in over a year after losing a case to Nokia and Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corp, two of China’s largest phone-networking equipment makers. 

The claims against InterDigital involved a series of Nokia’s Lumia phones, Huawei’s MediaPad 7 Lite and Fiji, and ZTE’s Flash and Merit models, which risked being banned from the U.S. market completely, had InterDigital won the suit.
