Hytera Alleged Did Not Need Stolen Motorola IP

By Isabella Cheng, Published Jun 15, 2021, 09:52am EDT (Info+)

Hytera alleged it did not need stolen Motorola IP to launch its first DMR radio. Instead, the company maintains it had done "all the hard work" before the "villains" arrived, and the product launch was actually delayed due to the "villains" attempts to "cut a corner".
