Missed something here...
Huawei. ZTE. "People's reublic" of China. Patents. IP.
Er, help me out, someone. I can't remember where I came in.
I'm so PROUD!
We've taught the Russians capitalism, and we've taught the Chinese about IP & patents!
Sob... brings a tear to my eye, it does!
oh the irony
Wasn't it Huawei who complety lifted the Cisco hardware and software portfolio in routers and swicthes some years ago and got into a bit of a pickle about that.
The trademark is a recycling logo!
Have you looked at the "trademark" that's being infringed? It's a logo for compliance with EU hazardous chemical regulations.
It's a bit stupid of ZTE to use it, but they may well have been confused as to why Huawai even created and trademarked their own such logo and assumed it was an official EU one.
Assuming that they do actually comply with the RoHS legislation that the mark indicates then this is a bit of a legal oddity.
