Samsung Electronics Co Ltd Counter Sues Ericsson In U.S. Over Alleged Patent Infringement-DJ

Dow Jones reported that Samsung Electronics Co Ltd countersued Ericsson earlier this week claiming that the mobile equipment maker infringed several of its patents including those relating to data transmission, a filing in a U.S. district court showed. The filing comes after Ericsson filed a suit against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in November in a U.S. court alleging the South Korean company infringed its mobile-technology patents after the two companies failed to agree on licensing terms. Although Samsung is a willing licensee, Ericsson demands unreasonable terms and conditions, Samsung said in the complaint. Ericsson no doubt has plans to extract unreasonable fees from the rest of the industry unless stopped by Samsung here.
