HTC has lost a long running legal battle and has been ordered to pay £1 million in licensing fees.
The patent dispute closed with a finding that HTC had infringed six claims in a microprocessing patent co-owned by TPL.
TPL had filed for bankruptcy earlier in the year.
The news comes as HTC announced its first ever quarterly loss of $3.5 billion Taiwan dollars, or around £738 million.
"This represents an extraordinary victory and vindication for the '336 patent and sends a strong signal to the marketplace that infringers of the MMP portfolio will be held accountable for their actions," said Cliff Flowers, TPL’s Interim Chief Executive Officer.
Attorney Jim Otteson of Agility IP Law, LLP said: "We are gratified that the jury correctly decided that HTC's accused products infringe the '336 patent."
He added: "We know that microprocessor technology can be daunting for lay people to understand, but the jury obviously worked hard to come to the right decision.
“And we also know that many other companies' products work the same way as HTC's infringing products. So that should give everyone something to think about."
The legal battle had been running since 2008.
