Nokia initiates product design lawsuit


June 28, 2006, Beijing, China - Nokia has initiated a civil litigation in Beijing, China against two companies for manufacturing and selling mobile phones that copy the proprietary and legally protected industrial designs of the Nokia 7260 mobile phone model.

Two of the named defendants in the case are Shenzhen Telsda Mobile Communication Industry Developing Co. Ltd and Song Xun Da Zhong Ke Electronic (Shenzhen) Co. Ltd, both of whom are Chinese phone manufacturers based in Shenzhen, China.

Nokia has also named the distributors of the mobile phones, Beijing Tongwanbao Commerce & Trade Co. Ltd An Wai Avenue No. 2 Branch and Beijing Xin Tongwanbao Commerce & Trade Co. Ltd, as co-defendants in the case.

In its complaint, Nokia requests the Court to order the defendants to cease manufacturing and selling the mobile phones that copy the protected designs and pay monetary damages and costs which are the usual remedies requested and granted in these types of cases.

This action is part of Nokia’s continuous efforts to protect its brand value and proprietary designs against infringers. Nokia vigorously protects its intellectual property and is ready to take action when its rights are violated.

The lawsuit is now being handled by the Beijing No. 2 Intermediate People’s Court which accepted the case filing of Nokia on 12 June 2006.
