TAIPEI--Taiwanese touch-panel maker TPK Holding Co. (>> TPK Holding Co., Ltd.) said Wednesday it filed in a Chinese court two lawsuits, against Nokia Corp. (>> Nokia Oyj) and a few other Chinese companies, seeking damages and production halts for infringing one of its patents.

TPK said in a statement the patent involved in both lawsuits, already accepted by Xiamen Intermediate People's Court in southern China, is the "conductor pattern structure of capacitive touch panel." TPK said the technology allows all conductive elements to be on the same layer, making a touch panel thinner.

TPK said one lawsuit is against Nokia and its assembler Compal Communications Inc. (>> Compal Communications, Inc.) and retailer Xiamen Fuxia Suning Corp. The other lawsuit is against Shenzhen O-film Tech Co. (>> Shenzhen O-film Tech Co., Ltd.), a touch panel maker, and its retailer Xiamen Zhongbo Trade Co.

The Taiwanese touch-panel maker said it is seeking damages of 26.9 million Chinese yuan ($4.28 million) from the Nokia case and another CNY60.6 million from the O-film case. It is also asking the two groups to stop using, manufacturing or selling the phones and touch panels in dispute.

Nokia's spokesman on legal matters, Mark Durrant said: "Nokia has become aware of the case and will study the claims made. Nokia will take whatever steps necessary to defend itself."

Compal and O-film weren't immediately available for comment, while Xiamen Fuxia and Xiamen Zhongbo couldn't be immediately contacted.
