Huawei files patent infringement suit against Verizon in Texas

Update: 7 February 2020 | 09:37 CET
Huawei has filed a lawsuit against Verizon in Texas, saying it wants compensation for the use of technology protected by 12 Huawei patents in the US. The company had originally wanted licensing fees for over 230 patents, but discussions with Verizon seem to have whittled the number down to 12, for the moment. Huawei noted that despite long discussions on the matter, the two companies were unable to reach an agreement on license terms. Huawei did not say how much it was seeking in compensation.
