    Samsung fined $7.3 mln in China patent case
    BEIJING,jan
    09- South Korea’s Samsung Electronics has been ordered to pay 50
    million yuan ($7.3 million) to a Chinese company for infringing its
    dual-mode cellphone patent, Xinhua news agency reported.Samsung was
    sued by Holley Communications, a company based in China’s eastern
    Zhejiang province, in April last year for violating a patented
    technology allowing cellphones to operate on both CDMA and GSM
    networks, Xinhua said.

    The Intermediate People’s Court of
    Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang, made the ruling on Saturday. The fine
    was a record pay-out for China’s cellphone industry, Xinhua
    said”Samsung has sold more than 700,000 cellphones that contain
    Holley’s patented technologies. The patents are still on sale. The
    compensation is only part of the sales,” the agency quoted Ge Chen,
    Holley’s executive director as saying.Ge said the patent for the
    technology and equipment was obtained in 2002. Holley officials said
    they would seek more compensation, Xinhua said.A spokesman for Samsung
    in Seoul said the company had not been notified of any official
    decision, but may appeal.

    Samsung last month was hit by two
    separate sets of lawsuits for infringing patented technologies from
    Eastman Kodak  and Spansion SPSN.0.Spansion accused Samsung of
    infringing its technology for flash memory, while Kodak accused the
    South Korean company along with LG Electronics of infringing its
    patents for digital cameras
