Apple Sues Qualcomm In China
Apple has filed a fresh lawsuit against Qualcomm, this time in China where it alleges Qualcomm abused its market position to score higher patent-licensing fees. Apple also said Qualcomm failed to honor its promise to license standard essential patents at fair rates, reports Reuters. Apple is seeking about $145 million in damages. The lawsuit follows a similar complaint Apple filed against Qualcomm last week in the U.S. In that lawsuit, Apple is seeking $1 billion in rebates it says it is owed by Qualcomm. Qualcomm was quick to respond to Apple's latest claims. "These filings by Apple's Chinese subsidiary are just part of Apple's efforts to find ways to pay less for Qualcomm's technology," said the chipmaker. Qualcomm is also facing a lawsuit from the Federal Trade Commission over its technology licensing practices.
