Tiny troll takes on Huawei

Written by Nick Farrell



Anu goes to the US ITC


China's Huawei, Olympus, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sanyo, JVC and Samsung are on a patent troll's hitlist according to the China Business News.

According to the report, a complaint from Anu has resulted in the  US International Trade Commission starting a "Section 337 investigation" to determine whether patent violations exist in the production process of electronic devices with retractable USB connectors. Huawei has not commented on the issue but it is one of its wireless modems which is is involved in the case. In 2011, Huawei's terminal products saw a total shipment of 150 million units and $7.07 billion in sales income.

Section 337 refers to section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. It involves conducting an investigation on the foreign enterprises suspected of infringing intellectual property rights of US companies. If the suspect products are sentenced to an "exclusion order", similar products will never be able to enter the US market.

We had never heard of Anu until complained to the ITC on April 18 this year. The company accused the products of violating patents in imports and the internal sales market.
