InterDigital, an American mobile tech R&D firm has sued Xiaomi for patent infringement. The two cases are filed in the Delhi High Court.

One complaint is against the breach of five of InterDigital’s cellular 3G and 4G Indian patents, while the second one is regarding violation of three of its H.265/HEVC Indian patents.

Apparently, it was involved in years of negotiations and finally, it has come to this.

In a statement released on Thursday, InterDigital said it is up for binding arbitration. It wants Xiaomi to not just refrain from its actions but also to address compensatory and punitive damages.

Meanwhile, it is ready to offer Xiaomi a license on FRAND (fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory) terms defined by the court.

“Wireless and video standards play the important role of eliminating barriers to entry, enabling new companies – like Xiaomi – to enter the market and have success despite having made no investment in previous wireless research activities. Advanced research drives key wireless and video standards, and fair licenses with companies that make use of those technologies enable companies like InterDigital to reinvest in still more research, benefiting all users and the industry at large. We’re hopeful that this record of research and licensing success, coupled with this claim in the Delhi High Court, will result in a fair license, and that Xiaomi will join Samsung, Apple, Huawei, and many others as customers of InterDigital,” William J. Merritt, President, and CEO of InterDigital remarked.
