Qualcomm files to block iPhone sales and manufacturing in China

  • Qualcomm files lawsuits in China to ban iPhones Bloomberg

The legal battle started earlier this year when Apple filed an antitrust suit against Qualcomm arguing that the chipmaker's licensing practices are unfair, and that it abused its position as the biggest supplier of chips in phones.

The inventions "are a few examples of the many Qualcomm technologies that Apple uses to improve its devices and increase its profits", Trimble said.

Qualcomm Inc filed lawsuits in China, seeking to halt the manufacture and sale of Apple Inc's iPhones in the country, Bloomberg reported on Friday. Apple has accused Qualcomm of failing to pay it $1 billion in rebates that it says it is owed.

However, Apple has now cut off those payments costing Qualcomm an estimated $2 billion a year in revenue. The lawsuit asks China's courts to ban iPhone sales in that nation as it pursues compensation from Apple for the alleged patent infringement.

In its lawsuit, Qualcomm reportedly claims that Apple is in violation of three patents, none of which are essential to any industry standards - meaning Qualcomm isn't obligated to license them. While Qualcomm filed its lawsuit in China on September 29, the Beijing court has not yet made the filings public, so the full details of the new lawsuit are still unknown.

Apple's shares were up marginally, while Qualcomm shares were little changed in afternoon trading. The San Diego-based chipmaker is apparently aiming to hurt Apple in the world's largest market for smartphones and cut off production in a country where majority of iPhones are manufactured.

Several IT analysts told eWEEK that the fight between the two companies is one to watch closely.
