Giants to settle patent dispute?

16.04.2019


Lately, progress was made between Huawei Technologies and Samsung Electronics, the world’s two largest Android smartphones makers, concerning their patent dispute in the US.  China’s Huawei, respectively South Korea’s Samsung, have entered into a settlement agreement, closed on February 25, to solve their two years old issue.

It all started in 2016 with the allegations brought by Huawei to Samsung that the latter has used its cellular communications technology without authorization and thus delayed, without a solid reason as to why, entering into a licensing agreement. In response, Samsung denied the allegations and in return accused Huawei of demanding unreasonably high licensing fees and counter sued them in the US. Since then, they have been fighting in courts in the US and also in China.

The companies recently filed a joint motion to a US appeals court aiming to pause for 30 days all court proceedings over their intellectual property disputes. They expect that by the end of this period to finalize a settlement after which Huawei is going to drop an appeal request. No comments were made on the matter by neither of the two companies.
