Nokia has won a patent battle against HTC in the UK following a British court ruling that the Taiwanese smartphone maker infringed on the Finnish firm's patented technology.
The Finnish mobile maker, which is asking for compensation, is also seeking ban on the import and sale of the HTC One in Britain.
The Patents Court in London ruled that HTC infringed on Nokia's European Patent dubbed 'Modulator structure for a transmitter and a mobile station', which facilitates transmission of data via phones.
The Taiwanese firm, however, argued that the technology under consideration had been incorporated in chips which it acquired from Qualcomm.
HTC also stressed that the Finnish mobile maker had entered a deal in the US not to indict the US chipmaker over the issue.
Nokia said in a statement that the UK High Court has confirmed the validity of Nokia's patent EP 0 998 024 and ruled that a number of HTC products, including the HTC One, infringe this patent.
"Nokia will now seek an injunction against the import and sale of infringing HTC products in the UK as well as financial compensation," the Finnish firm said.
"Local counterparts of this patent are already in suit against HTC in Germany, Italy, Japan and the US.
"Nokia has now asserted more than 50 patents against HTC in France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, UK and US."
The latest ruling by the UK court makes it the third court to uncover that HTC infringes Nokia's patented technology this year, which brings the overall infringed patents to four.
Last month, the Finnish mobile maker won an US ITC ruling that HTC infringed two of its patents related to signals sent or received by mobile telephones and tablets.
However, the judge ruled that the Taiwanese firm had not infringed on technology involving transmission of data from a computer to a mobile phone.
