U.S investigate Huawei over its alleged theft of trade secrets
« on: September 02, 2019, 01:55:47 AM »

Back in January, the U.S. Justice Department issued a 13 charge indictment against Huawei related to business that the company did with Iran. The country was under economic sanctions in the U.S. and Huawei, two of its affiliates (Huawei Device USA and Skycom Tech) and CFO Meng Wanzhou were charged with committing various crimes including bank fraud. The company was also criminally charged with stealing technology belonging to a phone testing robot from T-Mobile called "Tappy." Huawei previously lost a civil suit over this matter and was ordered to pay the wireless operator $4.8 million.

Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. prosecutors are investigating claims that Huawei stole intellectual property from "multiple people and companies" over the last few years. In addition, there are questions related to how the Chinese manufacturer poached employees from rival companies. The report says that the new investigation covers parts of Huawei's businesses that weren't covered during the earlier probe. Back in May, the newspaper listed a number of illegal acts committed by Huawei, including the theft of smartphone camera technology from a company in Portugal. Huawei defends its reputation when it comes to intellectual property and notes that it has had its own IP stolen. "We respect the integrity of intellectual property rights—for our own business, as well as peer, partner, and competitor companies," the company said. A few months ago, the firm's Chief Legal Officer said that it was never found to have acted maliciously in any case where it was accused of stealing trade secrets.
