We recently brought you a report that Coolpad had filed a patent infringement lawsuit against three companies of which Xiaomi was one of them. The lawsuit was filed at the Guangdong Province Intermediate People’s Court but a date is yet to be slated for hearing on the matter. Xiaomi has now issued an official response to the alleged patent infringement.
Xiaomi responded to a request for comment by Sina science and technology and in the response, the tech giant claimed that it is yet to be served the court papers as they had also seen it on the internet. The tech giant also stated that the details of the patent infringement are not clear. Also, Xiaomi also disclosed that it holds several patent agreements with Microsoft, Nokia, and other patent holders. In addition to that, the company hinted that it is also increasing its Research & Development effort with investments in that regard. Xiaomi recently opened a new R&D center in Shenzhen, Mainland China.
In the said lawsuit filed by Yulong Computer Communications Technology (Shenzhen) Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the Coolpad Group, Yulong claims Xiaomi and other co-accused produced, promised to sell and sold products that infringed on three of its patents with patent numbers; ZL200610034034.3, ZL201210250264.8, and ZL201210064396.7. The three patents are said to relate to app icon management, notifications, and system UI. As expected, the company seeks to stop the sales of the products infringing on its patents and also seeks compensation for the losses it suffered.
