Huawei is not there, and responds to the increasingly harsh isolation imposed by the USA by counterattacking. The Chinese giant, which despite the difficulties in the first half of 2020 has registered a significant increase in revenue, has in fact decided to make lawsuits for patent infringements rain on US companies: among the biggest objects are Verizon, Cisco and HP.
Paradoxically, the move was made possible by the US itself, which recently made some changes to the FRAND (far, resonable and non-discriminatory) conditions for the granting of licenses capable of guaranteeing Huawei sufficient leeway to launch the own offensive. And the Chinese company was not asked to pray.

Currently, Huawei has put in place hundreds of questions for the payment of royalties on intellectual property: the point is that beyond the outcome, the procedure will force Verizon and its suppliers to reveal confidential information in court. And in the States, obviously, they started to think badly. And that is to speculate that Huawei's intention is, from the beginning, precisely this: to exploit a legal short circuit within the USA to enrich its knowledge of competing products and technology.
In addition, Huawei could also get to renegotiate previous commitments regarding the licensing of its patents, thereby blocking shipments of licensees and potentially damaging many American companies.
In short, the tension between China and the western world, exacerbated by the pandemic in progress, shows no sign of easing, and the clash between the United States and Huawei is an emerging, visible and emblematic moment of a whole series of tensions that also run underground. In the meantime, hostilities have also spread to European territory, with France and England which – albeit with different policies – have lined up alongside the USA, and TIM which in Italy has expelled Huawei from the contract for the construction of the 5G core network.
