Huawei CEO says Chinese cybersecurity rules could backfire

Xu says policies could hamper free competition and innovation and undermine security in the long term

Reuters

SHENZHEN, China (Reuters) - China can only ensure its information security in the long run if it keeps its market open to the best technology products, be they foreign or domestic, Huawei's rotating chief executive Eric Xu told Reuters on Tuesday.

BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese Internet regulator on Thursday slammed as "unacceptable" a decision by Google Inc to no longer recognize its certificates of trust, a move which could deter Chrome browser users accessing sites approved by the authority.

Qualcomm deal sparks China smartphone patent skirmishes

Settlement has allowed wireless patent holders like ZTE and Huawei Technologies to seek royalties

BEIJING (Reuters) - Last summer, lawyers from Chinese telecoms gear maker ZTE Corp began writing to half a dozen local handset makers it believed used its patents. Its message was simple: it's time to pay up.
