Qualcomm Escapes 4-Year Europe Commission Probe

Today the European Commission said it is closing a four-year investigation into the pricing practices of Qualcomm's wireless patents and technology.

Broadcom, Telefon AB, Ericsson, NEC, Nokia, Panasonic Mobile Communications, and Texas Instruments had all complained in the EU that Qualcomm's royalty fees for licensing patents were too high and prevented competition from entering the market.

The EU has decided to cease incurring further costs and is closing the investigation.
