Apple claims Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors use their patented technology

Apple claims Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors use their patented technology

Qualcomm is alleged to be infringing on eight battery life patents.

"Apple can import iPhones (regardless of who supplies the modems) that do not infringe the patents asserted in this action, but Apple has no inherent right to infringe Qualcomm's [non-standards essential patents] through the sale of its iPhones", Qualcomm said in its filing. But it has now revised its answer. It's because Qualcomm says Apple isn't paying royalties on technologies that it says it played a key role in developing - like depth-sensing cameras and saving battery power. It's all very complicated, but this is common practice in the courts; deny a claim and then put forward a paper trail which proves there was no basis for the claim in the first place.

The dispute between Apple and Qualcomm over patents is part of a wide-ranging legal war between the two companies. The iPhone maker states that it filed for battery life patents long before Qualcomm went through with its own battery life patents, and further states that Qualcomm's infringement claims appear "to be a blatant effort to take credit for the innovation of others". In its filing, Apple alleges that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors, which power phones from Samsung and Google's Pixel phones, infringe on those patents.

Chinese actress Liu Yifei to play Hua Mulan
The movie was about a young girl who joins the army as a boy in disguise after learning that her weak father has to join the army. A graduate of the Beijing Film Academy, Liu speaks fluent English and also lived in New York City during her childhood years.

Apple's countersuit comes just weeks after Qualcomm accused Apple of sharing proprietary code with Intel.

The lawsuits ask for unspecified payments from Apple for the alleged patent infringement and for the court to make Apple stop using those technologies. One of the cases is a companion civil lawsuit to a new complaint also filed Thursday with the ITC that seeks the same remedy of banning iPhones with Intel chips. In a connected case, Qualcomm charged the contract manufacturers that create Apple's devices, however Apple associated with the team to defend them.
