Qualcomm tells court that Apple is trying to destroy its businessDuncan Riley / SiliconANGLE - 10 months ago
  • The allegation was raised at a court hearing on Friday in relation to a lawsuit filed by Apple in January 2017.
  • “They’re trying to destroy our business,” Qualcomm lawyer Evan Chesler told the Federal Court in San Diego.
  • Apple is arguing that Qualcomm has been charging it excessive patent licensing fees for years, as one of its conditions for allowing it to use its microprocessors in its iPhones and iPad devices.
  • The relationship between the two companies has long passed any point of civility, with Bloomberg estimating that there are now about 100 court cases currently filed worldwide between the two companies in relation to the patent dispute.
