The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York has issued a permanent injunction to uCloudlink, mandating it stop selling in the US; starting Sept. 1.
This follows an earlier summary judgment of patent infringement claims of the holding company of Skyroam, Inc, SIMO Holdings Inc. against uCloudlink Network Technology Limited America, brand-named GlocalMe. The Court found uCloudlink’s products infringed on Skyroam’s patent.
The new ruling permanently prohibits the defendants from importing, selling, offering to sell, or enabling the use of the Infringing Devices within the United States. uCloudlink is prohibited from providing mobile data and other services in the United States on devices purchased or rented in any country.
The defendents’ motions for judgment as a matter of law and for a new trial were denied.
“This serves as another important victory for us in our efforts to protect our valuable intellectual property rights,” said Jing Liu, Skyroam CEO. “The court’s decision sends a clear message to US sales channels to pull products that violate this infringement.”
