Amazon-Huawei patent row ends

BEIJING, March 5: US e-commerce giant Amazon and China’s multinational tech corporation Huawei have ended a row over patents, reported dpa news.

Amazon and Huawei have reached a multi-year patent cross-licence agreement that resolves pending litigation between them, Huawei said in a statement on Monday.

“Amazon respects Huawei’s worldwide patent portfolio, innovations, and contributions to the standardisation process,” stated Scott Hayden, vice president of intellectual property for Amazon.
