It has nothing to do with flaws...
Samsung/apple /MS and lots of others license the NON-SEP
from Nokia. Thats why they are not in court like HTC.
Its a similar reason Samsung have issues with Apple.
Although this is more that Apple dont license a lot of their NON-SEP.
You just cannot steal other people stuff and think there are no consequences. Asian firms struggle with this concept.
Its like some knowledge enters their head and by its very existence in their mind it infers ownership.
HTC just needs to pay up what I hear its about 2% so
for us its nothing a $400 phone is now $408
Gelvin - Maximus, 01 Feb 2014Do you know the difference between stealing and licensing? Not contradicting your point here.. Agree with d license infringement.. and yet of late it's more like a comical war in finding the tiniest of flaws to completely annihilate the competition.. imagine death penalty for stealing a pack of gum.. n this was the second time.. it's just sad
Nokia/Microsoft are mad because they are faded out of the market so they need to make some money out of trivial matters to pay their employees.

Nokia Lumia high end phones are exclusive to only one carrier in US. That's why they don't sale too many phones. In UK they are at 10% marketshare. They just have to bring more phones to the carrier. Some Asian countries has 20% marketshare.

Typical American bullies, Nokia and Apple see no creative way to beat the competition, but to sue them. HTC, Samsung. No matter what Nokia does, HTC and Android are still better.
htc is on the brink of a steep fall which will end in bankcrupcy. no Place for them in 2016 at all.

Very simple reason why HTC is being sued just because they refuse to make Windows Phone.
In order to solve this problem, HTC must release a new Windows phone that eventually nobody will buy.
So HTC will make a very low end Windows phone to make "M"okia happy.
So basically Nokia stoopes low enough to destroy a company on petty matters n policy when it can't do it on product success ratio.. damn talk about jealous n envious to d core

[deleted post]You should know that Nokia holds lots of patents. And companies like Apple, Samsung and others have license agreement with Nokia. So Samsung has little patents than Nokia.
One thing's for sure.
HTC is ACTUALLY being sued by MicroSoft.
Dig people. See the puppetmaster's hand behind Nokia.
Nokia is a patent troll.
Nokia, you failed miserably, at least let HTC have their chance.
Oh my God, this is absolutely ridiculous, keeping the law suit pressure so no your opponent can not continue growing is stupid, why not just make some actual goof stuff so it can be a real competition, enough with the childish act companies..

Well, for me, it is normal a firm, that invented and licensed something technical, protects it from other companies that uses their invention without their authorization.
It is not like a certain company that attacks another manufacturer because this other one made a rounded rectangular device with a button on the bottom; guess which one I am writing about ^^ ?
It is pretty much like Mercedes Benz with the ESP system: they invented it and they authorized its adoption to others car makers for money (except to BMW, which developped their own version of ESP, named DSC3, if my memory is correct). By the way, I doubt Daimler, the owner of Mercedes brand, would license the general design of their cars, so i think it is a pretty good base of comparision. If they did, BMW, Audi, Jaguar and all others car manufacturers would have to pay for using the sedan car form factor lol!
Coming back to smartphone industry, it is really bad for HTC, and they do not needed that, with their market position, and I know they produce good stuff, at least when there are micro SD slot and/or enough internal memory in their products.
If only the two brands could find a better way, outside the courts (sigh) ...
