Qualcomm fires back at Apple with new batch of patent infringement suits
This new lawsuit from Qualcomm follows the countersuit by Apple against Qualcomm filed on Wednesday.
Chip-making company Qualcomm has filed three new patent infringement claims against Apple at a US District Court, bringing the total number of suits against the phone and luxury gadget making company to 16.
That case accompanied a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission seeking to ban the import of Apple iPhones that use competing Intel Corp chips because of the alleged patent violations.
The dispute between Apple and Qualcomm over patents is part of a wide-ranging legal war between the two companies. Qualcomm says Apple is using its patents without paying the proper/ royalties.
This summer, Qualcomm filed a complaint alleging that Apple was infringing on its power-efficiency technologies for mobile phones. Qualcomm added that Apple has also encouraged the companies that actually manufacture iPhones to breach their contracts by refusing to pay Qualcomm royalties, and has "misled governmental agencies around the world into investigating Qualcomm in an effort to indirectly exert leverage over Qualcomm".
The three cases filed Thursday were all filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in San Diego. However, Qualcomm still believes that the dispute could be resolved outside the courts.
Most of Apple's models, starting from the iPhone 4s to the iPhone 6s, all employ Qualcomm modems inside them. Because the Qualcomm modem chip was much faster over LTE than the one made by Intel, Apple was forced to throttle its speed so that there wouldn't be a huge discrepancy in performance between the CDMA and GSM models.
All this is taking place in a technology market and ecosystem that is changing rapidly.
