New Delhi: Micromax promised on Tuesday to try to work out a patent deal with Ericsson after the Swedish equipment maker sued the leading domestic handset maker for alleged patent infringement.

The company issued the statement after a court on Monday gave an interim ruling in favors of Ericsson, which had filed an $18-million suit against Micromax, accusing it of using its patented technology. The suit marks the first high-profile Indian patent litigation case amid a number worldwide, notably between Apple and Samsung.

The court told Micromax to work out what is known as a Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory , or FRAND, license agreement with Ericsson. Handset makers often rely on technologies owned by other firms to make their mobile phones and conclude a FRAND license agreement when doing so.
