Qualcomm wants iPhone sales, manufacturing banned in China

Qualcomm Inc has filed lawsuits in China seeking to ban the sale and manufacture of iPhones in the country, the chipmaker's biggest shot at Apple Inc so far in a sprawling and bitter legal fight. If the result favor Qualcomm, Apple might reach for a settlement with the largest mobile chip maker instead of stopping the production.

The lawsuit is based on three non-standard essential patents for technologies used in iPhones, which includes power management and some of the iPhone's touch screen technology. "Apple invented uses Qualcomm technology without paying for them", she said. Plainly speaking, Qualcomm alleges Apple is using their inventions without paying royalties and is violating three patents.

Qualcomm is stepping up its legal spat against Apple.

Antonio Conte commits to Chelsea after 'year of suffering'
I have two years contract with Chelsea and am happy to work for this club and with my players. "It was hard for sure", he said of his first year at the club.

In a statement, Apple said the claims were "meritless", and that it believed the effort would fail. In our many years of ongoing negotiations with Qualcomm, these patents have never been discussed and in fact were only granted in the last few months. Although the lawsuit, which was filed on September 29, was revealed only today, the Chinese court has not yet made the filings public. However, he doesn't know if China's court is going to apply for further actions on the U.S. company request. Instead, Apple said that the royalty payments it owed to Qualcomm should be based on the actual cost of the technology only. This is the latest strike in a legal war between the two companies, which started out in the USA and has since expanded worldwide.

Qualcomm Inc. filed lawsuits in China against Apple in its continuing legal battle over patents. While Qualcomm gets the majority of its sales from making phone chips, it pulls in most of its profit from charging fees for patents that cover the fundamentals of all modern phone systems. It's been repeatedly fined for similar behaviors, with the latest ruling coming down yesterday, when it was fined $774 million by Taiwan's Fair Trade Commission.
