Thalwil, Switzerland –
In 2019, u‑blox filed claims against TTT for both copyright and patent infringement after u‑blox noticed similarities of functionalities of TTT’s TD1030 chip and corresponding modules with u‑blox’s M8 GNSS receivers. Following in-depth investigations, including reviews and analyses conducted by independent laboratories, u‑blox concluded that the similarities must have been the result of illegal copying of u‑blox’s source code by Techtotop.
According to the Court’s decision, TTT must stop producing and distributing its TD1030 navigation chip and navigation modules with the infringing software.
“u‑blox is very pleased with the decision of the Court which issued a fair and decisive ruling on a complex source code infringement case,” stated Thomas Seiler, CEO of u‑blox. “Our technologies are the result of our commitment to continuous research and development, and it is our responsibility to vigorously pursue any and all unauthorized uses.”
