According to recent reports, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it would extend the Huawei’s “temporary license” for another 45 days. This would be the fourth time that Huawei and its subsidiaries will be getting an extension. However, these extensions are only there to prevent the ban from adversely affecting US companies and consumers.

Huawei US companies ban

Gizchina News of the week

According to the US Department of Commerce, the temporary general license allows US companies to conduct “specific” and “limited” export, re-export, and transfer of products or technologies to Huawei and its non-U.S. affiliates until April 1.

The statement reads that the extension is necessary to allow existing telecommunications service providers in the United States, especially those in rural areas, to continue to operate existing telecommunications networks safely. The US will decide within the next 45 days whether to continue extending the “Temporary General License.”

It is quite interesting that this is the fourth time that the US will issue a “temporary general license” to Huawei. Since May 15, 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce included Huawei and its 68 affiliates in the list of entities. Subsequently, it issued a 90-day “provisional” license three times. First, on May 20, then on August 19, and November 18. The “Universal License” allows Huawei and its subsidiaries to engage in “specific activities”. With this license, it can continue to cooperate with networks in the US and to provide support for existing mobile services.

    Huawei should do a reverse ban on US

    It’s been an ongoing problem with Chinese companies stealing intellectual property, reverse engineering goods, and creating knockoff items for big brand name items forever.
    It’s not unthinkable that Huawei would be guilty of assisting their government by building in Backdoors, Spyware and utilizing Tracking on their technology.
    I am disappointed that this cannot be resolved immediately and either Huawei demonstrates that they are not guilty, or, if they are proven deceptive and guilty they are either given the chance to eliminate those concerns, or banned forevermore, and then it’s done.
    This mystery has to be resolved.

    Who said Huawei needs Google?

    I think the point is Huawei is purportedly a branch of the Chinese government and is utilizing the Huawei products for spying and feeding information to the government.

    But, I wouldn’t be surprised that Google caught Huawei cross the line with Spyware.

    The US is so far the ONLY PROVEN with facts that they are spying on the rest of the world and require mandatory backdoor from CISCO.

    The US is slandering Huawei But never provide any proof, the US should either show the proof or shut up about it.

    Having Backdoors available for security reasons is one thing. Protecting individual privacy is another. Feeding all of the data continuously is yet another thing.
    I’m in agreement.
    Bring the facts to light and then make the decisions based on the findings.
    However, there is an important distinction between the ways of the Chinese and the USA governments individual rights and freedoms.
    This can be easily seen in the Backdoors built into Apple software that are heavily guarded and even if the US government requests access they are not easily able access it during criminal investigations.
    So, Huawei, Google and others are expected to be as careful with personal information.
    That’s the real question.
    And it should be addressed.
