LUXEMBOURG -- (BUSINESS WIRE) --

On May 5 the German Federal Supreme Court heard the arguments in the case between Sisvel and Haier regarding Sisvel’s request for injunctive relief for infringement of cellular standard essential patents (SEPs) owned by Sisvel. The decision rendered on May 5, marks the final decision on the infringement of Sisvel’s European patent EP 0 852 885 (“EP 885”), and the related FRAND defense after a 6 year long legal dispute.

Prior to this verdict, on March 10, 2020 the BGH had already given final confirmation that Sisvel’s EP 885 should be considered valid. The nullity actions had been filed by Haier and ZTE. On April 28, 2020 there was a subsequent decision by the BGH confirming the validity of Sisvel’s European patent EP 1 264 504, where Haier and ZTE were likewise the plaintiffs. Last but not least, yesterday the BGH ruled that in the infringement proceedings of EP 885 the decision of the Appeal Court in Düsseldorf from March 2017 is reversed in relation to the finding on costs and insofar as the decision has found to the detriment of the plaintiff, i.e. Sisvel.

“Sisvel welcomes the results we have obtained in the recent weeks before the highest court for patent matters in Germany. Whilst we still see a too much hold-out and “efficient infringement” strategies being used, we have every confidence that Haier and implementers alike will take notice of this landmark decision.” said Florian Cordes, who managed the litigation for Sisvel, “We also trust that the decision of the BGH will provide certain instructions to the market and courts how implementers of SEPs should behave, which may prevent future disputes.”

The patents asserted against Haier are part of Sisvel’s bilateral “Wireless” program and are available under license with its “Mobile Communication Program” (MCP) as well. The Sisvel MCP is a licensing platform that licenses cellular (2G, 3G, 4G) standard essential patents, which are owned by a variety of companies, including Airbus DS, KPN, Mitsubishi Electric, Orange, Sisvel and 3G Licensing.
