US judge: Qualcomm owes Apple $1 billion

A jury in a federal court in Southern California ordered that Apple pay Qualcomm for patent infringement for chips used on iPhone 7, 8 and X models. And it is unlikely that Qualcomm will make a new payment to Apple.

The lawsuit stems from 2017, when Qualcomm alleged that Apple had used its technology without permission in some versions of its popular iPhone, according to Cnet.

"From a monetary perspective, this is hardly a victory at all - both sides probably spent as much as the verdict amount on legal fees", said Avi Greengart, founder and lead analyst for research firm Techsponential.

But they were silenced temporarily when Etienne Capoue slotted Watford ahead in the first half to put the hosts ahead. No team has ever won the quadruple of Premier League, Champions League , FA Cup and League Cup in a single season.

The Apple-Qualcomm dispute stretches back two years, with Apple claiming Qualcomm charges royalties for things that it has nothing to do with. One allows a phone to connect to the internet as soon as it is booted-up. "The technologies invented by Qualcomm and others are what made it possible for Apple to enter the market and become so successful so quickly", said Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm's general counsel.

In the trial that just concluded, the jury unanimously agreed with Qualcomm's contention that it should be paid $1.41 per iPhone relying on three of its patents.

Apple wasn't quite as pleased with the verdict.

Call it Schrodinger's Fortune: A U.S. District Court judge decided on Thursday that Qualcomm owes Apple almost $1 billion in rebate payments, Reuters reports. That case involves Apple's dispute over Qualcomm's licensing costs. 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. A judge in San Jose has yet to rule on the antitrust allegations following a 10-day non-jury trial in January. The Cupertino, California-based company has accused Qualcomm of using its control over so-called standard essential patents, which covers technology uniformly adopted by telecommunications providers and equipment makers, to extract excessive royalties for the entire patent portfolio, including non-essential patents, that it licenses to smartphone makers. There will be billions of dollars at stake in this case.

Qualcomm scored a pair of legal victories late previous year overseas. Apple wasn't so lucky in Germany, where a Munich court blocked the sales of certain older iPhones that use chips from Intel.
