HTC victorious in patent dispute

The patent dispute in the Swedish High Court of Justice between HTC Sweden, the Swedish government through the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration (LFV) and 3M’s distributor is now settled with HTC Sweden as the winner.

According to the High Court of Justice, HTC’s European patent for Twister is completely valid and HTC owns the exclusive rights to the Twister technology and its methods. According to a report published by the company, the verdict means that the High Court of Justice unambiguously establishes that HTC’s European patent is valid and will probably hold in a final trial. “A great victory and a joy to see such a well analysed and supported verdict,” said Håkan Thysell, founder of HTC and the inventor of Twister.
