The lawsuit between Apple and Qualcomm Inc. is never-ending, with Apple adding allegations to an already filed complaint. The latest claim from Apple is that there’s mounting evidence that Qualcomm is operating an “illegal business model.”
Apple are claiming that Qualcomm hasn’t fulfilled its obligation to charge fair and reasonable rates on patents related to industry standards.
Qualcomm’s current structure sees it sell chips as well as license its technology. A U.S Supreme Court ruling in May limited the ability of patent owners once the product has sold. Apple wants to argue that Qualcomm is essentially getting paid twice for the same invention. Qualcomm revolutionised the way mobile devices communicate, although to receive royalties on all facets of the technology would be unfair and unreasonable according to Apple.
