A German Court has ruled in favor of Nokia in litigation against HTC for patent infringement.  The Munich I Regional Court handed Nokia a Germany-wide patent injunction against all HTC Android devices (including the HTC One) that infringes on Nokia’s patent on connecting devices over NFC or Bluetooth to transfer resource information such as a URL (European Patent 1148681).

Under German law, HTC can appeal this ruling but must convince an Appeals Court that they are “more likely than not” to succeed with the appeal.  In the meantime, Nokia can choose to enforce the injunction on a provisional basis by posting a $400 million Euro (a little over $552 million U.S.) bond just in case HTC wins the appeal.  This would include a recall of infringing devices from resellers and commercial users.
