A district-level court in Germany has ruled in favor of Nokia in a patent case against Chinese phone maker Vivo, according to Chinese media outlet IThome. Vivo was found to be in the wrong about the renewal price of Nokia’s 4G standard essential patent, a key component of its phones. On April 11, Vivo issued a statement on its German website claiming that Nokia had not fulfilled its obligation to be fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory, and saying it would keep negotiating with its supplier to resolve the matter. “We are disappointed with Mannheim District Court’s decision, but we are prepared to suspend sales and promotion of our products in Germany if necessary,” said Vivo. While the company is preparing to appeal, customers in Germany may still buy Vivo products. [IThome, in Chinese]
