Qualcomm Must Stop Selling Some Chips, Can Continue With Others
Knock it off Broadcom!
I hope your company fails and everyone of your employees is fired!
A judge ruled that Qualcomm infringed on Broadcom patents, so please tell me why Qualcomm should not be forced to quit selling those chips? How is it fair for one company to spend millions of dollars developing a technology so that another company can illegally profit from it? Thankfully, we live in a country where there are laws in place to protect us from this debauchery. Posters on this forum never cease to amaze me.
I agree. It will always be a bad thing to have less selection out there but the fact is that if Qualcomm is stealing other companies IPR, they should be held accountable by law. This mess can ultimately be blamed on Qualcomm.
Well put. If I were to start a company that uses technology that Qualcomm developed and patented, you could bet your pants they'd sue me so fast my head would be spinning.
Broadcom deserves to defend their patents just like Qualcomm does.
I'm just saying that an industry underdog has more motivation to go after bigger companies with patent claims that may not be legitimate. And if an underdog company is buying up a bunch of patents they're not using in their own products, why are they buying them - and then suing over them?
The point is, competition is good, and Qualcomm needs to be kept on its feet. Nokia does too. The same of Ericsson and Texas Instruments. You wouldn't want a single company to control the entire manufacturing of mobile handsets, the same can be said of chipsets that go into the handsets.
NOKIA: Let me explain...
QUALCOMM: There's nothing to explain. You're trying to kidnap what I have rightfully stolen.
NOKIA: Perhaps an arrangement can be reached?
QUALCOMM: There will be no arrangement, and you're killing 3G.
NOKIA: Well, if there can be no arrangement, then we are at an impasse.
QUALCOMM: I'm afraid so. I can't compete with you globally, and you're no match for my US presence.
NOKIA: You're that beloved?
QUALCOMM: Let me put it this way: have you ever heard of Motorola, Samsung, LG?
QUALCOMM: Without me, they are nothing!
NOKIA: Really. In that case, I challeng...
