Qualcomm Apple lawsuit: Jury awards $31 million in patent lawsuit to Qualcomm

Qualcomm Apple lawsuit: Jury awards $31 million in patent lawsuit to Qualcomm

Qualcomm can now ask the judge for an order to halt further infringement of its patents by Apple.

A United States federal judge has issued a preliminary ruling that Qualcomm owes Apple almost $1 billion in patent royalty rebate payments, though the decision is unlikely to result in Qualcomm writing a check to Apple because of other developments in the dispute.

Judge Gonzalo Curiel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California ruled yesterday that Qualcomm owes Apple almost $1 billion in patent royalty rebate payments.

Apple violated patents and should pay $31 million in damages to mobile chip maker Qualcomm, a jury ruled. "The technologies invented by Qualcomm and others are what made it possible for Apple to enter the market and become so successful so quickly". Apple has sought to dismantle what it calls Qualcomm's illegal business model of both licensing patents and selling chips to phone makers.

Which is this: Apple stole Qualcomm-patented technologies for use in iPhones and other mobile devices and did so without compensating the inventor of those technologies. As you might imagine, Qualcomm was happy with the jury's decision while Apple said it was disappointed with it. Apple and Qualcomm still have a number of court battles remaining.

'The three patents found to be infringed in this case represent just a small fraction of Qualcomm's valuable portfolio of tens of thousands of patents, ' Rosenberg said in a statement.

Qualcomm's legal victory today covers a case that's only one of many legal tussles playing out in courtrooms around the world. The ruling will only become final after a trial, which is set to commence next month. Despite the award, when you consider the $1 billion that Qualcomm will have to rebate to Apple, the latter ended up approximately $969 million in the black. Qualcomm is also awaiting a judge's ruling in a case that wrapped up in January where the Federal Trade Commission alleged that Qualcomm uses anti-competitive practices in how it licenses its patents. Billions of dollars are at stake in that trial, which goes to the heart of the licensing dispute between the tech giants.

Qualcomm scored a pair of legal victories late previous year overseas.

The Qualcomm patents covered three key pieces of technology.

The outcome boosts Qualcomm's contention that its technology provides significant value to smartphones beyond the basic ability to connect to a telecommunications network. Other claims by Qualcomm against Apple have been dismissed in some German courts.
