  • Pope Criticises West For Trying To Export Own Brand of Democracy to Africa

    Pope Francis criticised Western powers for trying to export their own brand of democracy to countries such as Iraq and Libya without respecting indigenous political cultures, according to an interview published on last week.

    Speaking to France’s Roman Catholic newspaper, La Croix, Francis also said Europe should better integrate migrants and praised the election of the new Muslim mayor of London as an example of where this had been successful. “Faced with current Islamist terrorism, we should question the way a model of democracy that was too Western was exported to countries where there was a strong power, as in Iraq, or Libya, where there was a tribal structure,” he said.

    “We cannot advance without taking these cultures into account,” the pope said.

    As a Libyan said recently, ‘we used to have one Gaddafi, now we have fifty”, Francis said in reference to former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi who was deposed and killed in 2011. Francis has frequently attacked what he calls “cultural colonialism”, in which Western countries seek to impose their values on developing ones in return for financial aid. The pope said that “ghettoising” migrants was not only wrong but was also misguided in the fight against terrorism.

  • Huawei sues Samsung over patents

    Huawei is suing its tech rival Samsung over claims that its patents have been infringed.

    The Chinese firm said it was pursuing its South Korean rival in two courts - one in California, the other in Shenzhen.

    According to Huawei, several of its cellular communications and software inventions had been used in Samsung's phones without its permission.

    The specific patents involved have not been disclosed.

    However, Huawei has said at least some of them are classed as Frand - an acronym referring to "fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory".

    This means the Chinese company has committed itself to offering anyone a licence so long as they agree to a non-excessive compensation.

    This kind of agreement is common in the tech sector as it makes it possible for different companies' products to communicate and share data formats with each other.

    Huawei's intellectual property chief indicated it was seeking permission to use some of Samsung's technologies in return rather than seeking a payment.

    "Thus far, we have signed cross-licensing agreements with dozens of our competitors," said Ding Jianxing.

    "We hope Samsung will respect Huawei's R&D investment and patents, stop infringing our patents and get the necessary licence from Huawei, and work together with Huawei to jointly drive the industry forward."

    A Samsung spokesperson responded in an email to the BBC saying "we will thoroughly review the complaint and take appropriate action to defend Samsung's business interests".
