Motorola Mobility ordered to pay $10.2 million in Fujifilm patent lawsuit

Motorola Mobility has been ordered to pay $10M damages for infringing a Fujifilm patent. The U.S jury claimed that Motorola violated a Fujifilm patent related to converting color images to monochrome in its smartphones.


Fujifilm originally sued Motorola back in 2012, alleging that the company’s products infringed four of its patents. However the US jury found that three of the patents, two on face recognition and one on wifi-bluetooth were invalid but Motorola had infringed the fourth one. Motorola Mobility argued that the monochrome conversion patent should also be declared invalid as it was either obvious or not new, and says that it is now considering its options. Motorola Mobility was purchased from Google by Lenovo for $2.91 billion in 2014.
