2021 – Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba Telecom” or “the Group”, SEHK stock code: 2342), a global
leading wireless solutions provider, secured
a significant win in its litigation against Guangdong Huisu Telecommunication
Tech Inc. (“Huisu”). A previous court
ruling by Guangzhou Intellectual Property Court (the “Court”) determined that
Huisu willfully infringed Comba’s patent for Remote Electronical Tilt (“RET”)
antenna technology, and ordered Huisu to cease any infringement and to
compensate Comba for the monetary losses suffered.
The Court ruled that Huisu has to cease
its infringement, and such ruling against Huisu protected the legal right of Comba
during the valid life of the Comba’s asserted patent. The life of the Comba’s
asserted patents extends to year of 2034.
Huisu would be barred from selling its infringing antenna products till
May of 2034.
Moreover, the Court also found that
Huisu was utilizing its infringing antenna products to secure large-scale
bidding projects and continued to generate illegal gains through its infringing
activities from 2018 to 2019, therefore ruled that Huisu’s willful infringement
warranted a monetary damage. All remedies addressed in the Court’s judgment
were stay pending appeal.
“We are pleased that the Court has
recognized our legitimate rights. Comba products with the RET technology patent have been sold
to many countries and regions globally. This RET design, which differentiates
Comba’s antenna products, is well recognized by our global leading customers.
Comba is committed to innovations in high performance and cost-effective products.
Hence, it is crucial that we protect our dedicated work and investments in
research and development.” said Ms. Annabel Huo, Executive Director, Senior
Vice President of the Group and President of Comba Telecom International. “The remedies granted in this litigation underlined
Comba’s valuable innovations in the industry and served an important function
of deterring further infringement.”
