Motorola Solutions awarded $764 million in trade-secret theft case against Hytera

A federal jury in Illinois today ruled unanimously that Hytera Communications stole land-mobile-radio (LMR) trade secrets and infringed upon copyrights owned by Motorola Solutions, awarding $764.6 million in damages to the Chicago-based, LMR-industry giant. Originally filed in March 2017, the trade-secret theft lawsuit was part of Motorola Solutions’ multi-pronged legal attack against Hytera, which included claims before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and a separate patent-infringement litigation. In July 2018, Motorola Solutions added a copyright-infringement complaint to the trade-secret theft lawsuit, alleging that Hytera unlawfully copied Motorola Solutions’ source code into Hytera products.
