Patent dispute

Ericsson sues Samsung

Swedish telecommunications equipment maker Ericsson said Tuesday that it was suing South Korean rival Samsung in a US court for violating patents, reports news agency AP.

"Ericsson has today filed a lawsuit in the United States against Samsung for infringing its patents, after nearly two years of negotiations failed to reach an agreement," a statement said.

"The dispute concerns both Ericsson's patented technology that is essential to several telecommunications and networking standards used by Samsung's products as well as other of Ericsson's patented inventions that are frequently implemented in wireless and consumer electronics products," it added.
