Claims ZTE didn't respond to cease & desist letter

Huawei today sued fellow Chinese vendor ZTE in three European courts today. Huawei filed lawsuits in Germany, France, and Hungary for alleged patent and trademark infringement related to the company's LTE and data card technology. ZTE issued a statement claiming that it always worked with other companies to respect their intellectual property rights and would defend itself against these allegations.

Huawei claims that ZTE infringed on several patents related to its wireless modems and LTE technology. Also, Huawei claims that ZTE used a Huawei-registered trademark without obtaining the appropriate rights or paying licensing fees. Huawei claims that it was forced to file only after ZTE failed to respond to Huawei's notifications.

In response, ZTE issued a statement that "it is astonished that Huawei Technologies has taken these legal actions." Furthermore, "ZTE respects and adheres to international intellectual property laws and regulations without reservation, and absolutely rejects that there has been any patent and trademark infringement."

This is not the first time Huawei has resorted to legal action. Recently, Huawei settled a lawsuit with Motorola Solutions over allegedly divulging technology secrets.
