Ericsson accuses Samsung of patent violation

Ericsson has filed a new lawsuit against Samsung in a court in Texas, an Ericsson spokeswoman, quoted by an InfoWorld Daily report, said.
The report said the suit charged Samsung with infringing on Ericsson mobile phone patents and was related to a lawsuit that Ericsson filed in February, according to Kristina Hagg-Blecher of Ericsson.
In February, Ericsson filed lawsuits in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and the US after the two companies failed to agree on terms for a renewal of patent licenses.
Ericsson originally signed a licensing deal with Samsung in 2002 for patents related to several mobile phone technologies.
A Samsung spokeswoman said the company did not comment on ongoing legal issues, according to the report.
