The company lost a patent lawsuit against the Japanese Sharp.

Germany’s Daimler has lost its second mobile technology court in three weeks, this time against Sharp, Bloomberg reported. An expert committee proved that Daimler used Japanese technology to manufacture its cars without their consent.

The lawsuit is reportedly part of a broader showdown between the German automaker and some tech companies. Note that Daimler can appeal this decision, but if it wins, it will have to deposit 5.5 million euros as a security deposit so that the losing party can cover its losses with this amount.

Earlier we reported that Daimler lost the court case to Nokia. In this case, litigation arose around the software of the Finnish company, which was illegally used in the production of Mercedes-Benz cars. As a result of the lawsuit, the company may be banned from selling cars in Germany, otherwise, it will still have to pay about 7 billion euros.
