Ericsson is a pioneer telecommunications company out of Sweden. And it is one with deep roots down. It has over 33,000 patents to its name. Last year, Ericcson sued Xiaomi over infringements. Before then, it has sued quite a few others. Intex, Micromax and even Samsung. This time, the Swedish firm has gone after UMi to enforce a license agreement on 2G, 3G, 4G Standard Essential Patents.
This makes UMi the second Chinese company being sued by Ericsson. For now, UMi has been ordered to stop selling devices at AMAZON UK while the case is resolved.
PS: One day, Apple might just go after certaan Chinese manufacturers too….
