InterDigital files patent infringement actions against Xiaomi in India

Thursday 30 July 2020 | 10:54 CET | News

InterDigital filed two patent infringement actions in India against Xiaomi. One complaint involves infringement of five of InterDigital’s mobile 3G and 4G Indian patents and the other complaint involves infringement of three of InterDigital’s H.265/HEVC Indian patents. The claims were filed after years of negotiations and after InterDigital made clear that it's willing to resolve the terms of a FRAND licence through binding arbitration. 

The patents asserted in the mobile action draw from InterDigital’s significant contributions over the years to 3G and LTE mobile standards, reflected in the company’s portfolio of more than 32,000 patents and applications worldwide. InterDigital invested more than two decades of R&D effort in developing 3G, 4G and 5G technologies and is consistently recognised among the top innovators and owners of patents relevant to mobile wireless technologies. The patents asserted in the H.265/HEVC action reflect the R&D of the company’s Research and Innovation Unit in video coding technologies, which was integrated into InterDigital’s research team after being acquired from Technicolor in 2019. 

The claims were filed by InterDigital in the Delhi High Court, in New Delhi, India. In the proceedings, InterDigital is seeking compensatory and punitive damages for Xiaomi’s infringement of the asserted patents. The company is further seeking, among other remedies, injunctive relief to prevent further infringement of the litigated patents in India, unless Xiaomi elects to take a licence on terms determined to be FRAND by the court.

The Indian patents asserted in the cellular action are: No. 262910; No. 295912; No. 298719; No. 313036, as well as No. 320182. The Indian patents asserted in the H.265/HEVC action are Nos. 242248 / 299448 and No. 308108.
