Qualcomm May Seek iPhone Ban to Retaliate Against Apple


Qualcomm plans to ask the U.S. International Trade Commission to block imports of iPhones, according to a report. The move apparently was spurred by Apple’s recent decision to stop making royalty payments owed under a licensing agreement between the two companies, which is the subject of a billion-dollar legal battle in federal court. Qualcomm last month announced that for the quarter ended March 31 Apple had withheld payments to its contract manufacturers for royalties owed under a licensing deal for technology used in the iPhone.

Qualcomm Answers Apple's $1B Lawsuit, Files Counterclaims


Qualcomm has fired back with a response and counterclaim to Apple’s $1 billion federal patent suit filed earlier this year. Apple breached agreements and encouraged regulatory attacks in a scheme to coerce unfair licensing terms, Qualcomm claimed. Apple’s suit argues that Qualcomm used its dominant position in semiconductors to force it to pay billions in additional royalty payments for technologies like Touch ID or Apple Pay, or even added memory, which have nothing to do with the Qualcomm baseband processor chipsets used in mobile phones.
