Nokia filed a lawsuit against the Chinese company Oppo a long time ago. The verdict in this case regarding patent infringement has now arrived. In this case, Nokia was a huge success. The court ruled against Oppo and imposed a ban on Oppo and OnePlus smartphones.
In 2021, Finland-based smartphone brand Nokia filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Oppo. Nokia Company grants licenses to certain companies to use the patent. These licenses are only valid for a short period of time.
Companies must renew their license periodically. Oppo was granted such a license by Nokia in 2018.
In 2018, the license granted by Nokia to Oppo expired in June 2021. Nokia has accused Oppo of not renewing this license for a long time. Nokia went to court against Oppo for using Nokia’s patents without renewing the license yet.
Oppo uses Nokia’s protection features, Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) and SEP without license.
The case was prosecuted in Germany. The Mannheim Regional Court has now banned Oppo and its sister company OnePlus in Germany, ruling in favor of Nokia in a 4G/5G patent infringement case. This means that Oppo and OnePlus devices can no longer be purchased in Germany.
