InterDigital says it can still license 5g Tech to Huawei

Tom Paine

Wilmington-based InterDigital says it believes it can still license advanced 5g technology to China telecom giant Huawei, despite the Trump administration’s attempt to cut off technology sales to the company.

InterDigital (NASDAQ:IDCC) says export control laws do not cover patents, which are public records and therefore not confidential technology.

Huawei accounted for 14% of InterDigital’s $533 million in revenue in 2017.
