The conflicts between Huawei and the US continue. While Huawei is withdrawing a lawsuit over telecommunications technology seized since 2017, the US Department of Justice is suing a Chinese professor for industrial espionage who Huawei supports.
As Huawei said in a statement, the company has withdrawn a lawsuit against the US after the US released a telecom equipment shipment seized in September 2017. Huawei had filed a lawsuit against the US government in June after the company sought a series of lawsuits against it, claiming it was unlawful behavior by the US government against the company.
Telecommunications equipment was originally scheduled to be shipped back to China from the US in late 2017 after being used for testing in the United States. The blockade of Huawei's devices had been made because it was unclear whether Huawei should have had a corresponding export license for export. Huawei always considered the seizure unjustified and unlawful.
US accuse Chinese professor of espionage
The US government has filed an industrial espionage suit against a Chinese professor receiving research funding from Huawei. The US is of the opinion that under the guise of research, the professor has gained access to the secret information of a US company, which he then shared with Huawei. This information should have been technique for CNEX Labs SSDs. CNEX Labs had provided him with a board that was designed to use artificial intelligence to manage data center memory before it became publicly available, so the professor committed himself to secrecy. The start-up CNEX had already filed a civil lawsuit against Huawei.
The professor has taught as a visiting professor at the University of Texas, which Huawei has earmarked a $ 100,000 donation, according to the Wall Street Journal, and is actually employed at Xiamen University in Fujian, China. The US Department of Justice sees in these events targeted measures by Huawei, in order to get disguised by research funding to foreign technology. Huawei is said to have worked on a similar technology while the professor is said to have shared the secret information. Huawei confirmed in the civil lawsuit against CNEX to support the professor's work, but rejected the accusation of industrial espionage.
Huawei facing trade issues with Mate 30 Pro issues
Since May of this year, Huawei has been on the blacklist of companies with which the US government bans US companies to cooperate without explicit exemption. Since then, US companies have been allowed to co-operate with existing Huawei equipment and equipment based on two exemptions that have since been approved. Among other things, this should mean that Huawei must publish the upcoming smartphone Mate 30 Pro without pre-installed Google apps and services.
