China Mobile Devices Alliance against Patent Lawsuit from International Giant

Bridge IP Law Commentary once posted the essay on the patent battle between HTC and Apple, with our advices and opinions attached. And the event also caught the attention of local mobile manufacturers in China. According to Nandu Daily’s latest news, to counter the possible challenge of patent lawsuit in China, ZTE, TCL, Konka and other main phone companies have formed an alliance.

China made phones are known for its high price performance and cool looking, and the android devices occupy most of the products. And just like other phone companies, China manufacturers also face the attack from Microsoft and Apple. The alliance has already participated in the lawsuit filed by Nokia against the alliance members.

What has to be acknowledged is that the total patent owned by the alliance could still not rival with those of the international giants’. While, on the other hand, the incomplete of the domestic legislature may be the safe harbor of the local companies, and the international companies have not finished their layout in China. Furthermore, the rapid technology update could also be the chance to tip the balance.

For the possible patent lawsuit against the member of the alliance, Bridge IP Law Commentary will pay close attention on it.
