U.S. Prosecutors Probe Huawei on New Allegations of Technology Theft

Article Introduction

The new inquiries overlap with findings from a Wall Street Journal investigation in May that documented numerous allegations of intellectual property theft against Huawei throughout its history, these people said. They include alleged theft of smartphone-camera technology from a Portuguese multimedia producer and Huawei’s practices of recruiting employees from rival companies, the people said.

Huawei said at the time that it is committed to complying with laws in global markets and has a track record of innovation. “We respect the integrity of intellectual property rights—for our own business, as well as peer, partner and competitor companies,” the company said.
