Samsung LogoSamsung has sued Huawei in China for patent infringement.

The Korean phone maker says several of Huawei’s devices, including the Mate8 and Honor line, are violating six of its technology patents. Samsung is seeking $24 million in damages as well as a ban on the manufacture and sale of the devices in question.

The lawsuit is a tit-for-tat response to a similar lawsuit filed by Huawei against Samsung earlier this year. Samsung said it attempted to resolve the matter through negotiation, but has been unable to strike a deal with Huawei.

“It has regrettably become necessary to take legal action in order to defend our intellectual property,” said Samsung.

Tech firms often use patent-based lawsuits against rivals as a negotiation tactic.
