Key UK SEP Patent Win for TQ Delta20.3.2019 22:03:00 EETTiedote

TQ Delta LLC, a technology development and licensing firm, secured a judgment on March 18 by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales immediately enjoining ZyXEL Communications UK Ltd and its Danish parent company, ZyXEL Communications A/S, from further infringement of TQ Delta's European Patent (UK) 1 453 268. TQ Delta's patent relates to Digital Subscriber Line ("DSL") technology. In an earlier judgment, handed down on March 12, the Court found that the patent was valid and essential to the operation of ADSL2 and VDSL2. In that judgment, the Court held that the ZyXEL defendants have infringed and continue to infringe the patent. The Court also found that a second patent would have also been essential and infringed but was invalid. In its judgment earlier this week, the Court also found that the ZyXEL defendants were "holding out" against taking a licence to TQ Delta's portfolio of patents relating to DSL. It granted an immediate injunction and costs against the ZyXEL defendants
