Iwncomm prevails in patent lawsuit

The Beijing High People's Court upheld the Beijing Intellectual Property Court's ruling in favor of Iwncomm, a network security access provider and developer based in Xi'an, Shaanxi province in a patent dispute with Sony Mobile Communications (China).

Iwncomm initiated the legal procedures against Sony with the IP court in 2015, claiming the latter infringed on one of its standard essential patents, and prevailed in the case in March 2017. SEP refers to the patents that are required to be used to conform to the industry technical standards. Sony later lodged an appeal with the high court which was dismissed in late March.
