    4G launch could see mobile makers sued by software firms, says lawyer


    A lawyer has advised that RIM, Nokia, Samsung and Apple should be careful of companies that hold patents on technologies outlined to abuse the use of 4G speeds. Firms handling the other conditions of mobile technologies are executing the background of strengthening their patent suites simultaneously. While handset makers will be broadened up their patent portfolios to obstruct legal actions from their competitors, this was according to the partner and patent attorney of an intellectual property company Witners & Rogers, John-Paul Rooney.

    He also added that he referred to the value added services to go ahead on top of the technology and how these latest services that will be accessible in 4G will be more secure. Because of the new services there could be a lot of people to use the electronic travel documents and it may be other stuff like health records, drivers licenses and passports. While other people could be utilizing their banks using their mobile phones more often, however it all rely upon on its security.

    It possibly that the occurrence of 4G could allow all of that to take place within the next few years. EE is presently the only mobile operator in the United Kingdom that has launched a 4G service, however in May of June it will be replaced by those operators who are fortunate in the current 4G auction. In 2000, the awakening of the 3G transformed the way people used their mobile devices, together with the tremendous growth in the mobile email one of the largest revelations of this technology.

    However that much can be taken in from the effect of the 3G auction, Rooney added. At the time the most rewarding phone was RIM’s BlackBerry, however it carried out later that some of the technology the handset used was eventually Visto’s and it prevailed into a huge argument. To resolve a 3-year patent argument, RIM has already admitted to pay Visto $267.5 million and the other firms could be provocative to imitate what Visto did, Rooney stated.

    He also added that Visto was eventually fortunate and it got a huge payout and as expected RIM knew that their security system for email was the most outstanding among others and they hoped to continue to obtain it. In 2009, Visto went on to achieve Good Technology from Motorola and then renamed itself after the mobile device management firm.

    The another firm that could imitate Visto is digital security solution provider Gemalto which recently announced that it would be working with EE on its 4G services says Rooney. The Gemalto are the world leaders in digital security that they help providers to switch over from 3G to 4G. He had a look at the number of patents it filed between 2008 and the end of 2011 and it was  55. In the year 2012 that they had publish 146 almost triple the number of patents and this ties in with update of 4G.

    He also said that it may not be in the publics eyes however companies are working behind the scenes on filing a lot of patents to maximize their revenues from their innovations. Rooney urged firms to ensure that they do not fall into the same trap as RIM did with Visto. If the RIM has done a deal with the Visto a lot of earlier, before 3G had become mainstream then the settlement would have been a lot lower.
