In case the Guangzhou court has ruled that a TTT patent was infringed by certain u-blox products, u-blox will appeal the decision immediately.
In this case, u-blox customers should not be concerned about a first instance decision. According to Chinese law, the first instance decision is unenforceable and will remain unenforceable, unless the second instance’s decision (Chinese Supreme Court at Beijing) confirms the Guangzhou court’s decision. The supreme court will need time to review the arguments of both parties and ensure that its decision takes into account the facts and complies with the law. This process is time consuming and pursuant to past experiences of our lawyers, the supreme court’s written decision is not expected to be rendered prior to 2024.
