SMIC fires back against TSMC suits

August 26, 2004 – China’s Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) plans to “vigorously defend” itself against ongoing charges from Taiwan’s TSMC, which has filed several lawsuits in the past year alleging patent infringement and misappropriation of trade secrets.

“Given SMIC’s reputable technology partners and customers, and strong experienced in-house technical team, SMIC’s success has been accomplished without the need to misappropriate any third party’s trade secrets,” the company stated, adding that to advocate “fair and friendly competition, SMIC is willing to share its China experience.”
