Unwired Planet, Inc. Wins German Cellular Essential Patent Infringement Case against Samsung, LG Electronics and Huawei
Jan 21 16
Unwired Planet Inc. announced that the Düsseldorf District Court in Germany issued its judgments that Samsung, LG Electronics and Huawei each infringe multiple Unwired Planet patents. The judgments come after an initial trial held in June 2015 against Huawei, and a multi-day trial held in late November and December 2015 against the other defendants. Confirmation of Infringement: The Düsseldorf District Court court held that the defendants’ LTE and GSM compliant handsets infringe three Unwired Planet patents: EP (DE) 2,119,287 and EP (DE) 2,485,514, and EP (DE) 1,230,818. With respect to infrastructure equipment, the court found that Samsung and Huawei’s infrastructure equipment infringes patent EP (DE) 2,119,287 but not patent EP (DE) 2,485,514. The defendants filed actions with the German Federal Patent Court alleging that the patents are invalid; however, the Düsseldorf court did not grant a stay of the proceedings. The court ruled that it did not find a sufficient likelihood that these actions, called 'nullity actions' in Germany, would be successful. In the German case, claimant Unwired Planet International Ltd. was represented by Ben Grzimek of the EIP Law Firm and Hosea Haag of the Ampersand firm.
Samsung Announces Executive Changes
Dec 1 15
Samsung replaced the head of its mobile business and promoted the chairman's daughter as the South Korean giant seeks to reassert its smartphone dominance amid a generational power transfer in the founding Lee family. In an annual personnel reshuffle, Samsung named Koh Dong-Jin, executive vice head of Samsung Electronics's mobile research and development, as the new head of mobile business. His predecessor, J.K. Shin, will still remain as head of the overall IT and mobile unit, but will "step back from day to day operations" to focus on long-term strategy. Shin took over the mobile division in 2011 and oversaw Samsung's rise to the world's number-one smartphone maker. But the unit has struggled of late against growing competition across all price segments -- from arch rival Apple's high-end iPhone to cheaper models churned out by smaller Chinese rivals like Xiaomi. Koh led the development of Samsung's latest devices including the Galaxy S6 smartphone and Galaxy Note 5 tablet.
