Patent Wars

Patent wars in mobile techonology

The excellent BBC reported this week the ever increasing battles between mobile phone giants and the technology involved in powering the beasts.

The BBC reported that “The number of handset patent infringement filings to the US courts grew from 24 cases in 2006, to 84 cases in 2010, [and] it expects that number to grow to 97 cases this year, reflecting more than a four-fold rise in the space of half a decade”.

Luckily in the UK such cases are few and far between and whilst we have seen an increase in IP litigation and more lawyers are willing to offer no win no fee deals during the court process it won’t be long before patent litigation also hits the UK, although I cannot see it reach the levels in the US.
