A recent notice from ITC indicates that it will investigate the second complaint filed by Nokia against HTC for patent violation. One trial is already going on against HTC in case of the first complaint filed by Nokia.
According to FOSS patents, in this new investigation Nokia is asserting six patents against HTC, one of which is allegedly infringed by HTC’s implementation of Google’s VP8 video codec (part of the WebM project). Perhaps, in Germany, infringement has been identified in case of one of such patent violation. Naturally, Google will be an intervener here as well. This is likely going to impact all the latest HTC devices including HTC One, Droid DNA and more.
