Sharp Corp won a patent infringement lawsuit against Daimler in Germany

Daimler has filed a nullity action against the patent in a separate lawsuit before Germany`s federal patent court in Munich.

Japan`s Sharp Corp on Friday won a patent infringement lawsuit against Daimler in Germany, a ruling that could enforce a sales ban against the German automaker.

A district court in Munich ruled that mobile communications technology used in Daimler vehicles violates a patent owned by Sharp, the Japanese electronics company said.

New reports suggest Sharp can enforce a sales ban against Daimler if it posts 5.5 million euros ($6.5 million) as a guarantee to cover any damages in the event the ban is overturned on appeal.
