Samsung asks ITC to ban some of Ericsson's telecom equipment in the U.S.
The products made by Ericsson that Samsung is trying to ban in the U.S. include base stations for telecommunications networking. And with Ericsson's network business down 17% in Q3, the company is turning to the court to defend its IP portfolio. Samsung, the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, is much smaller than Ericsson in networking equipment. But seeing how the company has grown to dominate smartphone sales, there is no reason why it couldn't repeat the feat in the telecom equipment market which is why Ericsson is so determined to hold on to its current position using the courts,
In other legal news, on Friday, the EU charged Samsung with not negotiating a standards-essential patent in good faith with rivals including Apple. Use of such so-called FRAND patents are supposed to be negotiated "fairly".
