Huawei Seeks Samsung Royalties
Chinese telecoms company Huawei says Samsung has infringed patents on its 4G devices and wants recompense after Samsung refused to pay.
Huawei filed patent suits against Samsung in the US and China after the two weren’t able to reach a licensing deal over the use of technology fundamental to how mobile networks operate.
In the lawsuit, Huawei claims Samsung infringes as many as 11 patents related to the industry standard for 4G mobile devices. It’s seeking cash compensation. However, in the complaint Huawei doesn’t seek any order to block sales of Samsung products in the US.
