Huawei Sues Samsung Over Cellphone Patents

Oh crap, not this again. No sooner than it settled its patent disputes with Apple, Samsung is now being sued by Huawei for patent infringement. To cover all its bases, Huawei has filed lawsuits in both California and China.

Huawei has sued Samsung in both China and the US for allegedly violating its patents on cellular technology and software through its cellphones. Unlike what you see in many such lawsuits, though, the Chinese tech leader isn't demanding a straight financial penalty -- it wants a cross-licensing deal where the two sides share patents, much like the ones it has with "dozens" of other partners.
