SolarEdge Founder Comments On Huawei’s IP Theft

Earlier, we reported a press release announcing SolarEdge Technologies’ lawsuit against Huawei. Last week, SolarEdge’s founder, Lior Handelsman commented publicly on the lawsuit, saying:

Like any other industry, the photovoltaic sector can only grow if companies invest in innovation. When other companies use intellectual property [IP] that you developed, and that is rightfully yours without paying you for it, it is considered stealing. Since we believe that Huawei infringed our IP rights, we filed a lawsuit. The only way the PV industry will grow is if IP laws are upheld.

If we invest two years of development in HD-Wave technology and someone comes and copies it, to save those two years of development, they should be stopped.
