HTC Issues Statement On The IPCom Potential Ban In Germany

You may be aware of this case, but for those who are not, since 2009 a court in Germany started a complaint vs HTC regarding IPCom patent litigation seeking to ban sales of HTC 3G devices in Germany. Now two years after all started HTC Corporation issues an official statement:

To clarify reports regarding IPCom patent litigation on the Commercial Times (Taiwan), Economic Daily News, etc. on November 27, 2011

On November 25, 2011, HTC withdrew its appeal in the IPCom EP1186189 case, finding that the appeal had become redundant since the German Federal Patent Court had previously held the relevant claim of the patent to be invalid. IPCom’s original injunction covered only one HTC handset, which is now no longer sold in Germany. Furthermore, HTC has modified its implementation of the UMTS standards, so even in the unlikely case that the Mannheim court reinstates an injunction, it will have no impact on HTC’s sales in Germany. HTC hereby clarifies that this does not have any impact on HTC business in Germany.

In short, our German friends shouldn’t have anything to worry about as HTC devices sales won’t be affected at all. Great news for those planning on grabbing a shiny new Sensation XE for Christmas, we suppose.
