We all know that Apple and Qualcomm recently get along very unhappy, and now, between the two sides of the war and upgrade, because Apple refused to pay royalties, Qualcomm is asking US trade regulators to prohibit iPhone imports and sales.
Qualcomm alleges that Apple infringed Qualcomm's six patents to improve iPhone battery life. Now Qualcomm wants Apple to pay the relevant fees. "Apple continues to use Qualcomm's technology and refuse to pay for it," said Don Rosenberg, executive vice president and legal adviser at Qualcomm, in a statement.
Don Rosenberg also mentioned, "This is actually a very simple case, we have six patents, we believe that Apple has infringed our patent."
"If they are willing to negotiate with us, we are happy to license these patents to those who are willing to accept, but Apple says they do not want to negotiate with us," Don Rosenberg said.
"We are convinced of the value of intellectual property, but we should not pay for the technological breakthrough that has nothing to do with them, and we are willing to pay fair fees for the standard technology used in our products," Apple said. Since they refuse to negotiate a reasonable condition, we ask the court to help. "
The lawsuit is for those who use the wireless modem manufactured by Intel, which means that only part of the iPhone will be affected by the lawsuit, of course, the US trade regulators generally take 18 months to make The experts said the suit between Apple and Qualcomm could set the tone for how the court treated innovation.
It is not clear how much this action will have for the iPhone.
In January this year, Apple took the lead in fire, Apple said, Qualcomm has been "charged with its unrelated technical costs", asked to pay $ 1 billion. Then in April, Qualcomm filed a counterclaim.
