McKool Smith Represents Gemalto In Patent Infringement Lawsuit Over Android

October 23, 2010

DALLAS – Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit over technologies used in the popular Android operating system.  The lawsuit Gemalto SA v. HTC Corporation, et al., No. 6:10-cv-561, was filed October 22 in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.   

In the Complaint, Gemalto accuses Google, HTC, Motorola, and Samsung of using Gemalto's innovations in the Android operating system, Dalvik virtual machine and associated development tools and products. The patented technologies at issue were developed in the 1990s at Gemalto's research and development facilities in Texas.  

“Intellectual property is the lifeblood of any company,” says McKool Smith Principal Robert Cote. “This lawsuit is intended to protect Gemalto’s innovations from unauthorized use by Google and the other device manufacturers named in the action.”  

Gemalto supplies governments, wireless operators, banks and enterprises with a wide range of secure personal devices, such as subscriber identification modules (SIM), Universal Integrated Circuit Cards (UICC) in mobile phones, smart banking cards, smart card access badges, electronic passports, and USB tokens for online identity protection.
