Huawei sues Samsung for infringing on user software and 4G patents

Huawei-Mate-8

It’s unusual to see a Chinese firm sue other companies for stealing their unique designs — partly because those other companies copy each other at rapid pace that you can’t really tell who came up with what in the first place. It’s mostly due to loose regulations in the country guiding intellectual property.

But it’s Huawei suing Korean manufacturer Samsung in both the US and China with claims that the chaebol hasn’t been paying up for patents covering 4G technology, operating systems and user interfaces. Shenzhen is still willing to negotiate licensing terms if the chaebol comes to the table.

Keep in mind that Samsung’s patent battle with Apple is still pending a Supreme Court review.
