Apple, IPCom to square off in patent trial potentially worth over $2B

updated 11:29 am EST, Wed February 5, 2014

Plaintiff so far winning rulings against Nokia, HTC

On February 11th, Apple will go to trial at Mannheim Regional Court to defend itself against a patent infringement suit brought by German patent firm IPCom, reports say. The latter company accuses Apple of violating a standards-essential wireless patent upheld by the European Patent Office last month; another, separate patent is also at stake. IPCom is asking for €1.57 billion ($2.12 billion) in damages, plus pre-judgment interest.

IPCom has previously sued Nokia and HTC, and won several rulings. The core patent in the Apple case deals with a way of managing access to overloaded wireless channels by cellphones. FOSS Patents notes that the Mannheim Regional Court has dealt with more wireless patent suits than any other legal arena.
