In the case of Sony Ericsson vs Xiaomi Indian court granted exparte injection which would have been very difficult elsewhere including USA.
The propaganda that India has lax patent enforcement is spread by US pharmaceutical giants. Actually India has very high standards in ppatent grants. If your patent is granted in India , it is unlikely to be rejected elsewhere.

Interesting...

Yeah, just more trolls fishing for money from a successful company. I'm an American and America has a lot of great things about it, but the patent system is NOT one of them.

So, it still means that the company needn't be a patent troll just because of that point. However, going by the reported history of filing law suites against other companies, it is a safe guess

Just because its website doesn't reveal any products or clients does not imply a patent troll. You're one irresponsible reporter.

its time for China Gov to pressure the US company. if china just let Mi Collapse , then the whole market china made should go into law suit as well.
