Huawei Files Patent Lawsuit Against Motorola

Huawei Technologies has asked a U.S. District Court to block Motorola from transferring certain intellectual property (IP) to Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), which is in the final stages of acquiring MMotorola's wireless network business.

Huawei and Motorola had been partners in radio access network and core network busines since 2000 and Motorola has resold Huawei wireless network products to customers under the Motorola name. Huawei said during this period, Motorola was provided with products and confidential Huawei intellectual property. Huawei is now seeking to prevent this intellectual property from being transferred to NSN.
