European Patent Office Invalidates IPCom 3G Patent, Nokia And HTC Should Be Happy

Its a good news for Nokia, HTC and other companies. European Patent Office ruled that IPCom’s patent in question is invalid in its current form. IPCom which owns several telephony related patents bought from Bosch’s mobile telephony patent portfolio sued Nokia, HTC and others on patents regarding mobile devices connecting to Internet. Even last week, a regional court in Mannheim, Germany, found that Nokia had violated IPCom’s patents. Since, those patents are now invalidated by European Patent Office, Nokia, HTC and others enjoy a interim success until IPCom makes its next move.
