Goodix responds to FPC patent infringement complaint
According to court service documents, the FPC complaint filed on August 23 specifically identified one capacitive fingerprint sensor from Goodix and one smartphone model launched in early 2017 that allegedly infringed on one of its Chinese patents.
In its statement Goodix noted its belief that the lawsuit brought by FPC is without merit and said it will vigorously defend itself against FPC allegations.
“Goodix respects intellectual property rights and the rights of inventors to protect their innovations, in the same manner that Goodix expects others to respect its own intellectual property rights. Over the past several years, Goodix has maintained a commitment to independent innovation in capacitive fingerprint authentication technology through extensive R&D investment.
“As of September 2018, Goodix has been building a growing patent portfolio of more than 2,300 patent applications and over 300 granted patents worldwide to protect its position in the market place and its innovations. It also includes more than 1,100 patent applications in the field of fingerprint authentication technology and over 120 granted patents.”
