It seems HTC is using a specific type of microphone in the HTC One, developed by St microelectronics and Nokia exclusively for use in Nokia devices, something which HTC
allegedly had no rights to use in their device.

Nokia has now been granted an
injunction by the Dutch court over the use of the patented technology.  which will prevent HTC from shipping the One in Netherlands unless they acquire rights for the technology or
stop using it altogether in their
phone.

The injunction is currently only
applicable in Netherlands so sales in
other countries should remain
unaffected, for now.
