Motorola wins $764.6 mln in damages against Hytera Communications

Feb 14 (Reuters) - Motorola Solutions Inc said on Friday it has won a trade secret theft and copyright infringement case against Chinese rival Hytera Communications Corp and has been awarded $764.6 million in damages.

A U.S. jury in Chicago found that Hytera stole Motorola's trade secrets and infringed its copyrights, the company said.

Following the verdict, the communications device maker is planning to seek a global injunction preventing Hytera from further misappropriating the stolen trade secrets and infringing its copyrights. (Reporting by Amal S in Bengaluru and Jan Wolfe in Washington; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
