Samsung, Huawei settle patent disputes in China

Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 17:11 CET | News

Huawei and Samsung have settled their long-standing patent infringement disputes, a local Chinese court confirmed to state-run CCTV. The two companies have reportedly reached a patent agreement that will serve as a framework for cross-licensing globally, Caixin Global reports. 

Under the preliminary deal, they will grant rights to each other’s intellectual property under certain arrangements. This means that the lawsuits between the two companies will end. The companies have started to withdraw relevant charges already, CCTV reported.

Since 2011, Huawei and Samsung have filed over 40 lawsuits against one another globally, disputing their communication technologies, CCTV said. In February, a motion filed in US court said the two companies were in talks to settle the disputes
