Samsung vs. Huawei patent war continues: Samsung fires back

Samsung has taken Huawei to court, alleging that the Chinese smartphone juggernaut has infringed on six of its patents, seeking $24.1 million in damages. The Korean corporation is alleging that some Huawei products, including the Honor lineup and last year's pricey Mate 8, are illegitimately employing Samsung patents.

This is the latest round in the ongoing barrage between Huawei and Samsung. The Chinese manufacturer in May filed lawsuits against Samsung in both the United States and China, seeking compensation for alleged unlicensed use of its 4G tech, along with unspecified infringements relating to OS and system software. The two lawsuits were an unusual move for a Chinese company at the time, forecasting a trend of Chinese tech companies gaining more confidence in asserting their intellectual property rights. Some days later, the Korean manufacturer hinted that it will be filing a countersuit.

The latest Samsung-filed lawsuit seeks to block Huawei and Beijing Hengtongda Department Store Co. from producing and selling the aforementioned devices.

Samsung said Friday in an official e-mailed statement:



A Huawei spokesporeson has said that the company had not yet received an official complaint from Samsung, noting that it would “review any documentation and defend ourselves as appropriate when we do [receive an official complaint]”.

"Obama Phone" being the Sean Hannity / YouTube name for the SafeLink Wireless Program. "The Lifeline program originated in 1984, during the administration of Ronald Reagan; it was expanded in 1996, during the administration of Bill Clinton; and its first cellular provider service (SafeLink Wireless) was launched by TracFone in 2008, during the administration of George W. Bush. All of these milestones were passed prior to the advent of the Obama administration."

1- Huawei filed two lawsuits against Samsung before Samsung taking the move to sue them. The same Huawei that offers an iOS like software, in an HTC inspired phones. 2- This isn't 2009 my friend, Apple has been found guilty in copying Samsung and android features and just add them to their iOS as rebranded and groundbreaking innovations.
