According to GizmoChina and ITHome (Chinese), Coolpad’s patents relate to “app icon management, notifications and system UI”. The company is demanding that Xiaomi immediately be ordered to cease production and sale of products that infringe on these patents. The company also demands that Xiaomi pay for the economic loss due to the infringement as well as legal and all reasonable and related fees to the cases in question.

Coolpad’s CEO had claimed earlier that his company held over 10,000 patents that have allegedly been stolen. He now intends to recover the “losses” from said infringement by suing “infringing” companies.

According to ITHome, the cases have been accepted, but are yet to be heard in a court.
