Fractus Resumes Antenna Campaign, This Time Against ZTE

August 2, 2017

Roughly three years since its last litigation, against Samsung, came to a close, Barcelona-based Fractus SA has filed suit against ZTE (2:17-cv-00561). The new complaint asserts seven antenna patents against ZTE for the provision of various mobile devices having an internal, multiband antenna. Fractus pleads that “it has designed antennas for and/or has licensed the right to use its technology to much of the mobile antenna community, including HTC, Kyocera, LG [Electronics], Palm, Pantech, RIM, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, and UTStarcom”. Several of these companies were defendants in the first case in this campaign, filed in May 2009.
