Shenzhen, China-based multinational networking, telecommunications equipment, and services company Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. has filed a lawsuit against Bellevue, Washington-based mobile operator company T-Mobile International AG in the Eastern District of Texas during the first week of July. Huawei requested a judicial ruling that it is following the right rules regarding its use of “standard essential” patents, which mandate that patents should be licensed on a “fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory” basis. The recently-filed suit is a follow-up lawsuit for four patent infringement lawsuits that Huawei lodged against T-Mobile in January 2016, all based in the Eastern District of Texas.
Just a few months after this initial lawsuit, on Thursday, July 7, Huawei filed a second lawsuit against Seoul-based South Korean multinational conglomerate company Samsung Group in the Quanzhou Intermediate People’s Court.
