Foxconn joins Apple in legal battle against Qualcomm

Qualcomm logoThe court battle continues for Qualcomm. Now Taiwanese companies Foxconn, Compal, Pegatron, and Wistron are planning to file a lawsuit against the San Diego company in the federal district court. The claim is Qualcomm is charging excessive fees for patent licenses and violates anti-trust laws.

All four companies are involved in the manufacturing process of the iPad and the iPhone. Apple is helping the lawsuit by covering all legal expenses. That comes as a response to the legal complaint that Apple is not paying for six key patents it is using.

Foxconn joins Apple in legal battle against Qualcomm

Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf said yesterday he expects everything to get resolved out of court, but this is not his only battle. The FTC also sues the company for anti-competitive practices. It says Qualcomm threatened to withhold chip supply to obtain agreement to unfair or unreasonable licensing terms.
