Motorola Mobility said a US jury ordered the organization to pay $10.2 million in harms for utilizing Fujifilm Corp’s patented innovation as a part of its phones without authorization.
Fujifilm Corp, a backup of Tokyo-based Fujifilm Holdings Corp, sued Motorola in 2012, blaming the organization for encroaching three of its licenses on computerized camera features and a fourth patent identifying with transmitting information over a wireless association, for example, Bluetooth.
The harms the jury requested were lesser than the $40 million Fujifilm looked for while going into the trial, which started on April 20.
The jury in San Francisco said Motorola, a unit of China’s Lenovo Group, demonstrated that three of the questioned licenses – two on face recognition and one on wifi-bluetooth were unbiased. Motorola neglected to win on a patent identified with changing over shading pictures to monochrome.
“We are pleased with the verdict related to three out of the four patents and are evaluating our options on the one patent on which we did not prevail,” Motorola spokesman William Moss mentioned in an email.
A representative for Fujifilm did not instantly react to an appeal for input.
Motorola, which Lenovo purchased from Google Inc a year ago, had contended that the Fujifilm licenses ought to be scratched off in light of the fact that they were not really new or they were evident contrasted with previously patented techs. The organization likewise contended it officially held a license to Bluetooth innovation.
