Motorola continues legal proceedings against Hytera

Patent infringement proceedings have been commenced by Motorola Solutions against Hytera Communications in China and Australia.

As previously reported by Critical Comms, trade secret misappropriation and patent infringement complaints have already been filed against Hytera in the US District Court, in the Regional Court of Düsseldorf in Germany, and with the Regional Court of Mannheim in Germany.

The Statement of Claim filed on 31 July 2017 asserts that certain Hytera digital mobile radios offered in Australia infringe three of Motorola Solutions’ Australian patents, AU2005275355, AU2006276960 and AU2009298764.

Motorola has sought a declaration from the court that Hytera has infringed its patents, plus an order permanently restraining Hytera from continued infringement, as well as damages and such additional relief as the court deems appropriate.

“As the world’s leading provider of two-way radio equipment and systems, we are committed to vigorously enforcing our valuable intellectual property rights on behalf of our customers, shareholders, employees, partners and other stakeholders,” said Mark Hacker, general counsel and chief administrative officer of Motorola Solutions.

“This filing in the Federal Court of Australia is a continuation of our global efforts to safeguard Motorola Solutions’ proven record of technological innovation and our extensive portfolio of more than 4000 patents. We are confident in the merits of each case and will continue to pursue legal remedies to stop Hytera’s infringing behaviour.”
