Amazon and Huawei sign global patent agreement

[Shenzhen, China] Amazon and Huawei have entered into a multi-year patent cross-license agreement that resolves pending litigation between them.

“Huawei is pleased to exchange patent rights with Amazon,” said Alan Fan, Head of Huawei’s Intellectual Property Rights Department. “Patent licensing expands the number of companies that can use what otherwise would be proprietary technologies, which, in turn, provides consumers with more innovative products and services.”

“Amazon respects Huawei’s worldwide patent portfolio, innovations, and contributions to the standardization process. Amazon also respects Huawei’s efforts to license its patents to companies like Amazon, which frequently use industry technical standards when inventing new products and services for customers,” stated Scott Hayden, Vice President of IP for Amazon.
