Fractus sues ZTE for patent infringement

Barcelona, Spain, August 02, 2017 – Fractus, headquartered in Barcelona sued ZTE Corporation, ZTE (USA), Inc., and ZTE (TX), Inc., for infringing one or more claims of seven patents owned by Fractus covering internal antenna technology for wireless devices.

Fractus, founded in 1999, is the pioneer of geometry-based antenna technology. By applying the science of geometry and mathematics to antenna development, Fractus delivers small antennas that fit inside the devices with optimum multi-band functionality.

Among the numerous awards Fractus was named 2005 Davos World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, 2006 Red Herring Top 100 private companies in Europe and Middle East, 2014 European Inventor Award nomination and 2017 European Inspiring Company Award. The continued growth in our family of licensees with companies such as Motorola, Blackberry, LG, HTC, Samsung, Sharp, Kyocera, demonstrates not only how solid our technologies are, but also how fundamental they are to the burgeoning connected devices market.

In 2009 Fractus successfully sued Samsung for Samsung’s infringement of related patents, and a jury returned a verdict against Samsung in favor of Fractus.

Fractus is represented by Max Tribble and Justin Nelson of Susman Godfrey L.L.P. and Michael Heim, Leslie V. Payne, and Micah Howe of Heim, Payne & Chorush, L.L.P. This is the same litigation team represented Fractus in the Samsung case.

The case has been filed in the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division.
