Motorola Receives Favorable Patent Infringement Judgment in China
Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), today announced that in 2007 it filed a lawsuit against a Chinese company known as Guangzhou Weierwei Electronic Science and Technology Co. Ltd. (Weirwei). The lawsuit related to the Chinese Company’s two-way radio model number VEV3188 that was claimed to fall within the scope of a Motorola Chinese Design Patent.
In a ruling last December, the First Intermediate People’s Court of Beijing (the court in the first instance) determined that the VEV 3188 two-way radio infringed Motorola’s Design Patent. Weierwei was therefore ordered to cease the manufacture and sales of VEV 3188 two-way radios and to financially compensate Motorola.
“We are very pleased that the First Intermediate People’s Court of Beijing recognizes the importance of intellectual property protection and has ruled in Motorola’s favor,” said Jonathan P. Meyer, Motorola senior vice president for Intellectual Property Law. “Motorola invests extensive human and financial resources to bring compelling designs to market, and the company will remain vigilant in protecting the value of this investment”.
