05:19 EDTSSNLF, ERICEricsson files patent infringement action against Samsung
Ericsson (ERIC) has filed a lawsuit in the U.S against Samsung (SSNLF) for infringing its patents, after nearly two years of negotiations failed to reach an agreement. The dispute concerns both Ericsson's patented technology that is essential to several telecommunications and networking standards used by Samsung's products as well as other of Ericsson's patented inventions that are frequently implemented in wireless and consumer electronics products. Ericsson has concluded that it has no option other than legal action after negotiations have not been successful since Samsung has refused to take a license on FRAND terms. Ericsson helped to create the mobile telephone system by contributing hundreds of its inventions to the standard in exchange for a fair royalty. To date, Ericsson has signed more than 100 license agreements with all major players in the industry. In 2011 alone, Ericsson spent $5B on research and development.
