Samsung Now Sues Huawei Over Patents




mate 8

A few months back we posted a news on how Huawei was suing Samsung over patent infringement on its 4G technology the Korean mobile phone maker used in its mobile phones.

Now, Samsung is taking similar route and counter suing for alleged infringement on cellular technology and software belonging to its company which found their way on Huawei’s Mate 8 and other models.

In a statement released by Samsung, it said “We have faithfully negotiated with other patent holders for the fair licensing of technology,” Samsung said on Friday. “However, despite our best efforts to resolve this matter amicably, it has regrettably become necessary to take legal action in order to defend our intellectual property.”

Last year Samsung was at logger heads with Apple that raised much attention to the Galaxy phones, the series of spats between the two brought publicity on the complex intellectual property and patent laws in the mobile technology. Which also led to tech company’s buying ailing mobile phone manufacturers for their patents, like Nokia and Motorola going to Microsoft and Google.

In the latest war of IP, Huawei the third largest phone maker is taking on the world number one, in similar fashion, the publicity and marketing value on getting this much attention alone will have executives (at Huawei) smirking, even if they were to lose the 24 million lawsuit.
