Amsterdam, June 20, 2014
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 - GTO), the world leader in digital security, today announced that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit did not support Gemalto’s proposed claim construction for its patents in the lawsuit over Android. Patents involved remain valid.
Olivier Piou, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Gemalto's has consistently patented and broadly licensed its innovation so we are certainly disappointed by this judgment with regards to the scope of use of some of our intellectual property. This decision has no impact on our historical patents licensing activity, nor on the Company’s 2017 long-term objectives. We are now reaching the end of a long legal process, fully committed to our new development plan.”
