Motorola accuses Hytera of infringing two-way radio patent

Motorola Solutions has filed more patent infringement complaints against Hytera Communications.

As previously reported by Critical Comms, Motorola has already mounted a legal case again Hytera for patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation, to which Hytera has responded.

With these additional patent infringement complaints, Motorola now has five pending litigations against Hytera, including the patent infringement complaint filed with the US International Trade Commission and the separate patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation complaints filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

The new Mannheim Court complaints assert that Hytera’s two-way wireless communication devices with improved squelch functionality are infringing Motorola’s patent EP 1 139 562 B1. Significantly, the focus of the new cases differs from any of the other patents that Motorola has previously asserted against Hytera and represents the second patent covering acoustic performance of two-way radio devices.

Motorola is seeking an injunction preventing Hytera from offering and delivering products with the accused squelch feature in Germany, as well as the recall and destruction of infringing products and various damages.

“Each legal action we take furthers our commitment to safeguarding our valuable intellectual property for the benefit of our customers, shareholders, employees, partners and other stakeholders around the world,” said Mark Hacker, general counsel and chief administrative officer of Motorola Solutions.

“This case, in addition to the case filed in the Düsseldorf Court, demonstrates the breadth of our patent portfolio in terms of both technology and geographic scope. We are confident that the steps we are taking globally will be effective in stopping Hytera’s unlawful conduct.”
