Patent battle

Patent battles between smart phone manufacturers are never far away from the news.

The latest argument is between Chinese smart phone maker Huawei and South Korean company Samsung, which the former has won, following a recent court battle in Quanzhou, China.

Samsung have been ordered to pay 80m yuan ($11.6m; £9.3m) to Huawei for infringing the firm’s smartphone cellular technologies.

The two are also suing each other over patents in other courts.

But it’s not all good news for Huawei in the UK. The company lost a court case against Unwired Planet International. Courts ruled that the Chinese company must pay Unwired licensing fees for using Unwired’s patented intellectual property in 4G handsets.

At least all the arguing keeps lawyers and judges in jobs.
