Patent Infringement: Qualcomm Files Three Complaints Against Apple

Patent Infringement: Qualcomm Files Three Complaints Against Apple

The lawsuit covers a number of Apple devices, the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the new iPhone X. Qualcomm is looking for an injunction against these devices.

Hot on the heels of Apple announcing its lawsuit against Qualcomm in an ever-growing legal battle, the Snapdragon chip maker has filed its own legal complaint that could see iPhone X sales banned in the United States.

The patents in question primarily relate to technology used to improve battery life, but spans across multiple areas of smartphone technology that is allegedly utilized within the iPhone line. Today, Qualcomm sued Apple, claiming that the latter was rifling through the closet where Qualcomm keeps its intellectual property. The report further notes that Apple is suing the world's largest chipset manufacturer for an unspecified amount.

Qualcomm's claims all quote Apple executives ire at finding Samsung copying Apple designs. In the latest turn of events, Qualcomm has filed a fresh lawsuit seeking a ban on the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and last year's iPhone 7 series. The complaint was particularly limited to devices using Intel modems instead of those built by Qualcomm and its sub-contractors. Qualcomm apparently now owns patents covering that interface, as well as other technology first developed at Palm.

Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg said the timing of Qualcomm's lawsuits is coincidental to Apple's countersuit.

Qualcomm has remained defiant, challenging Apple on alleged patent violations.

"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", the filing reads.

This legal dispute started at the beginning of the year after the Federal Trade Commission accused Qualcomm of anti-competitive behavior. Back in January, Apple filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the chip designer for abusing its taking undue advantage of its market dominance. Qualcomm has been firing back at Apple since, and continues to.
