InterDigital asks to ban sales of Huawei, Nokia, Samsung and ZTE devices


    InterDigital sold Intel's patent package last summer , but apparently still retained a lot of ammunition to attack four new targets: Huawei, Nokia, Samsung and ZTE, Engadget reports . The company is requesting a ban on the sale of “some 3G and 4G wireless devices ... that infringe up to seven US InterDigital patents.”

    All 3G and 4G products of the companies mentioned were at risk - from USB modems to laptops and from phones to tablets. The InterDigital statement does not mention specific models, but the company asks the US International Trade Commission to block the import and sale of all patent infringing devices.

    This is not the first time that Samsung, Nokia and Huawei clash with InterDigital - the first reached an agreement with the patent troll back in 2008, the last filed a lawsuit against him this year, and Nokia had a long lawsuit with him - and that- it tells you not the last.

    RIM decided to stay away from the battle, which yesterday continued the licensing agreement with InterDigital, as well as Sony, which signed a similar agreement today.
