(Beijing) — A court in China’s coastal Fujian province has ordered U.S. semiconductor giant Micron Technology Inc. to immediately cease selling its products on the mainland in a move that will likely add to trade tensions between Washington and Beijing.

The Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court issued the injunction on Tuesday in response to a patent infringement case brought to it by Taiwan’s second-biggest chipmaker, United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC), UMC said in a statement.
