Hytera Wins Trademark Infringement Case Against Chinese Company
Thursday, August 24, 2017 | Comments

Hytera Communications won a verdict, where Changsha Intermediate People's Court of Hunan Province ruled that Quanzhou TYT Electronics infringed Hytera’s trademark by adopting the brand name “Tytera” for its products and promoting relevant products in the market. The court ordered Quanzhou TYT Electronics to pay Hytera 2.8 million Chinese yuan renminbi (US$420,000) as damages and ruled that Quanzhou TYT Electronics shall immediately cease all infringement activities.

Hytera Communications, formerly Shenzhen HYT Science & Technology, launched “Hytera” as its new corporate brand and digital product line brand in March 2010, while “HYT” remained the analog product line brand. Since its founding in 1993, Hytera has brought professional communications solutions to users with constant technological innovation. Synchronizing with a new line of digital two-way radios, including TETRA, Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) and Professional Digital Trunking (PDT), the launch of the Hytera brand in 2010 symbolized the company entering a new era.

Last year, Hytera devoted around 15 percent of its gross annual revenues to research and development (R&D). As of 2017, Hytera has applied for more than 543 patents relating to digital products, 238 of which were granted. In the first half of 2017, Hytera filed for 110 patents in China and has been awarded 73 patents, 17 of which were filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).
