Huawei files patent infringement claim against ZTE

Huawei has filed lawsuits in Germany, France and Hungary against ZTE Corporation for patent and trade mark infringement. It claims that ZTE is infringing a number of Huawei’s patents relating to data card and LTE technologies and also says ZTE has even used a Huawei-registered trademark on some of its datacard products.

Dr Song Liuping, Huawei's Chief Legal Officer, said “Huawei was compelled to initiate this action in order to protect our innovations and registered intellectual property in Europe. Our objective is to stop the illegal use of Huawei's intellectual property and resolve this dispute through negotiation so that our technology is used in a lawful manner. Intellectual property is among Huawei's most valuable assets. That is why we feel a responsibility to our customers and to our shareholders to do everything possible to protect these assets in any legal jurisdiction worldwide. Where violations are taking place, we will do whatever is required to ensure that the use of Huawei's intellectual property by any company is based on internationally accepted protocols and practices.”
