Motorola Solutions files proceedings in Australia against Hytera Communications
Motorola Solutions announced that it has commenced patent infringement proceedings against Hytera Communications of Shenzhen, China and Hytera Communications Australia in the Federal Court of Australia by filing an Originating Application and Statement of Claim. This legal action follows the patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation complaints filed by Motorola Solutions against Hytera in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on March 14, 2017; the patent infringement complaint filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission on March 29, 2017; and the patent infringement complaints filed with the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in Germany on April 18, 2017 and with the Regional Court of Mannheim in Germany on July 24, 2017. The Statement of Claim filed on July 31, 2017 asserts that certain Hytera digital mobile radios offered in Australia infringe three of Motorola Solutions' Australian patents, AU2005275355, AU2006276960 and AU2009298764. Motorola Solutions seeks a declaration from the Court that Hytera has infringed Motorola Solutions' patents and an order permanently restraining Hytera from continued infringement, as well as damages and such additional relief as the Court deems appropriate.
