Audio Maker Dolby Sued Oppo and vivo in India. Can they continue to grow?

by Woody Oh | 11月 21, 2016

It is reported that Dolby, the US-based audio technology company, sued two rising Chinese companies, Oppo and vivo, for failing to chip in the appropriate royalties for use of its patented technologies in India.

This is the high-profile IP related infringement lawsuit by global companies towards some rising local and Chinese companies in India while we have seen a few cases in 'Micromax and Lava by Ericsson' in 2013, 'Xiaomi by Ericsson' and ' ZTE by Vringo' in 2014.

It appears that India is becoming the right venue for global intellectual property companies to collect the royalties from local and Chinese players who are trying to enter into the rising Indian market.

Oppo and vivo are stepping up their efforts in selling more smartphones in India recently, so it remains to be seen whether the current IP embroilment would prohibit these two Chinese vendors from increasing their presence in India.
