Huawei Sues ZTE for Patent and Trademark Infringement

Huawei filed lawsuits in Germany, France, and Hungary against ZTE for patent and trade mark infringement.

Huawei alleges that ZTE is infringing a series of its patents relating to data card and LTE (Long Term Evolution) technologies and illegally used a Huawei-registered trademark on some of its data card products.

Huawei said it has invited ZTE on numerous occasions to enter into cross-patent licensing negotiations but was equally unsuccessful.

In response, ZTE said it is astonished that Huawei has taken this action because it "respects and adheres to international intellectual property laws and regulations without reservation, and absolutely rejects that there has been any patent and trademark infringement."
