Huawei has filed a lawful motion to attempt to reverse the 2019 National Defense Laws Act, which excludes US authorities from purchasing Huawei products.
Filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, the movement claims that the government was unconstitutional.
The NDAA bill, adopted in the summer of 2018, prohibits federal agencies and their contractors from using Huawei equipment. The raising was based on supposed national security issues due to Huawei's links with the Chinese government. Huawei has denied being controlled by China's government, military or intelligence services.
This is just one of the many challenges facing Huawei. Earlier this month, President Trump has adopted an executive order that stops US companies from buying telecom equipment from companies classified as national security risk. Huawei was also added to a trading department list that stopped it from acquiring technology developed by US companies. This has affected relationships with companies such as ARM, Intel, Google, Qualcomm and others. Huawei is currently working on a 90-day postponement decision.
"Today it is telecom and Huawei, tomorrow it may be your business, your industry, your customers," said Huawei chief, legal chief Song Liuping, to journalists on Wednesday. Song says Huawei is looking for ways to fight the US ban.
How does this Apple work?
You may be wondering why we are covering Huawei news on an Apple site, but the fate of the two companies may be contiguous. Huawei last year took over Apple as the world's # 2 smartphone maker, in terms of the number of phones sold.
More significantly, some have suggested that degradation on Huawei products can cause damage to Apple. This is because it can trigger a retribution from Beijing looking to place similar restrictions on a US tech giant, such as Apple.
Huawei's founder (and known Apple fan) recently said he would not see China banned Apple products. 19659010] Source: Reuters
