Vringo today filed a lawsuit against ZTE's operations in the U.K., alleging that the Chinese telecom equipment and handset maker is violating its patents. Vringo makes and markets a product called Facetones for smartphone platforms, but also recently acquired 500 mobile technology patents from Nokia. It is some of these 500 patents, many of which have been deemed standard essential, that Vringo alleges ZTE of violating. "ZTE has elected not to take a license to patents in Vringo's portfolio relevant to certain international standards, despite manufacturing and selling devices and equipment for a number of years that are said by ZTE to be compliant with those standards," said Vringo. Vringo called this lawsuit a first step in its "global licensing and enforcement program."
