U.S. pressure on Huawei, but still pay the Chinese for patents

Huawei Technologies Co. owns the largest number of patents for 5G technology. This means that the Chinese company will still get money despite the efforts of the administration to trump erase Huawei from the supply chain, according to Bloomberg.

Research companies GreyB Services and Amplified the AI revealed that 80% of the patents related to 5G standards fall into six companies — Huawei, Samsung Electronics Co., LG Electronics Inc., Nokia Oyj, Ericsson AB and Qualcomm Inc. The last is the only American company in the list.

This situation may be awkward for a President Donald trump, whose administration attempts to exclude Huawei from the technological 5G-race, citing the Chinese company’s cyber security threats. The administration has launched a number of legislative initiatives, including a ban on the sale of chips produced using us technology.

“Even if they hire some other company to build the infrastructure of 5G, they still have to pay Chinese companies for intellectual contribution to the development of the technology,” said Deepak Syal (Deepak Syal), Director, GreyB Services Pte., dedicated to technological research, which conducted the study together with the firm Amplified AI Inc.

the Definition of the number of patents that the company holds, and their key values for industry standards will tell who would benefit from next generation technologies that promise to revolutionise sectors such as self-driving cars, robotic surgery and the Internet of things.

the administration’s Efforts trump vs Huawei has borne fruit. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., a major producer of chips for Apple Inc products. Huawei plans to move high-tech manufacturing in America. In the UK, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is taking steps pon the exclusion of Huawei from its mobile networks of the fifth generation, thinking through potential replacements.

Industry standards is critical to ensure the collaboration of devices and connections between them, even across national borders. Technology companies trying to establish these standards and a promise that any relevant patents would be licensed on “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory” conditions.

for many years there is a global patent war over how to determine these fair conditions and how much money to charge in royalties. The issues of standardization and patents are at the heart of litigation. For example, many years lasted the battle with Apple, Qualcomm, and Huawei dispute with Samsung.

the study GreyB Amplified and there were about 6400 inventions that are declared “essential” for 5G as at 31 December 2019. Comparing the wording of the patent to the standard, a group of 25 researchers took 1 658 patent to the “core” of 5G technologies. Ultimately, however, the courts and the negotiators will have to decide whether the patents are essential to standard, whether they are valid or not, and how much they cost.

On the basis of this study it was found that all the firms filing the patent application should complete them to ensure that they might later enforce his rights.

“Instead of talk, who have less contribution or who have less patents, let’s work to increase the intellectual contribution of our country, then to build 5G infrastructure”, — said the Director of the company GreyB Services Pte. “Otherwise, even the blocking and sanctions will not help in the end because [the US] will pay the money in the form of patent royalties”.
