NL – Philips v. Wiko / Appeal EP 659

Posted: January 8th, 2020

Koninklijke Philips N.V. v. Wiko SAS, Court of Appeal The Hague, The Netherlands, 24 December 2019, Case No. ECLI:NL:GHDHA:2019:3433

Philips holds various UMTS patents, amongst which EP 659. In first instance, Philips was unsuccessful in its injunction proceedings against Wiko, as the Court denied the infringement claim and revoked the Patent based on Wiko’ counterclaim as several claims of EP 659 were deemed to lack novelty and inventive step.

On appeal, the Court of Appeal confirms the first instance decision.
