NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="" target="_blank"gt;#hotspotlt;/agt;–The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
has granted a summary judgment of patent infringement claims of the
holding company of Skyroam,
SIMO Holdings Inc. The Court found that products offered by UCloudLink
Network Technology Limited America, brand-named GlocalMe, infringe on
Skyroam’s patent.

“This is an important victory for us,” commented Jing Liu, Skyroam CEO.

improperly infringed our valuable intellectual property rights.”

United States. The lawsuit alleges unauthorized use of patented
technology, which is prohibited by law, and is intended to protect
SIMO’s significant investment in its innovative Virtual SIM (vSIM)
technology. The lawsuit seeks monetary damages and an injunction to
prevent UCloudLink from selling any products in the United States that
infringe SIMO’s patent.
