US Policy shift made it easier for Huawei to claim patent infringement cases

Listing Huawei on the Entity List that banned and denied the Chinese giant licensing access to critical US technology last year.  Today, Forbes reports that Huawei has filed patent infringement claims against Verizon, Cisco, and Hewlett-Packard. 

Through the legal process, Huawei is demanding royalty payments for hundreds of patents that may compel US courts to discover critical and confidential information about Verizon and its suppliers. This means that Huawei would be able to access its competitor's products and technology.

What makes the situation even worse is that a new US policy shift on standardized technologies has strengthened Huawei's patent game. This policy shift may allow Huawei to renege or revoke earlier commitments to fairly license the company's patents which could further harm many American companies.

Forbes says that it is likely that the Trump Administration had not considered how Huawei would turn US patent law against US companies as the President and his team have been leading the charge to rid Chinese-controlled companies from the communications infrastructure of the US and its allies that include 5G.
