Gemalto Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Over Android

Gemalto N.V., a digital security outfit based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, just announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the United States against Google, HTC, Motorola, and Samsung for use of Gemalto’s security products in the Android operating system, Dalvik virtual machine and associated development tools and products. According to the Gemalto, the patents involved in the suit were developed at the company’s research and development facilities in Texas in the 1990s.

From the announcement:

“Gemalto’s patented technologies are fundamental to running software, developed in a high level programming language such as Java®, on a resource constrained device,” said a Gemalto spokesperson. “Gemalto is recognized as a pioneer and ground-breaking contributor to the JavaCard® – one of the devices for which the patented technologies were conceived.”

“This lawsuit is necessary to protect our investment in innovation,” he added. “The technologies we develop and associated intellectual property rights are essential to Gemalto’s future. It is our commitment to our employees, customers, partners, and shareholders to protect those innovations from companies who ignore Gemalto’s intellectual property rights.”

The complaint is available as a public document for further details. The Company will have no further comment on this ongoing legal matter.
