Qualcomm pursues iPhone to be banned in US

According to the latest Qualcomm’s lawsuit, the giant chipset maker is currently seeking U.S. trade regulators to ban iPhone from importing into the country.

It is learned that Apple has allegedly infringed on six of Qualcomm’s patents, including technology that improves iPhone battery life. Qualcomm now wants Apple to pay damages.

“Apple continues to use Qualcomm’s technology while refusing to pay for it,” Don Rosenberg, executive vice president and general counsel of Qualcomm, said in a statement.

Qualcomm insists regulators to investigate which phones use cellular processors from Qualcomm’s competitors, and halt sales of iPhones that violate the patents. It is not ascertained on how many iPhones that would affect.

The suit is the latest battle in an ongoing war between the two California technology companies, one that experts say could set the tone for how courts treat innovation.
