Qualcomm last Friday won a major legal victory over Apple. A jury in Federal court in San Diego ruled that Apple violated three of Qualcomm’s patent and must pay for the violation of about 31 million dollars.

The lawsuit was filed last year. In it, the company Qualcomm has accused Apple of violating patents related to the technology to increase the Autonomous operation of the smartphone.

По мнению суда, Apple нарушила три патента Qualcomm

A fine in the amount of $ 31 million — a very modest requirement Apple, the second-largest U.S. company after Microsoft, with a market value of $ 866 billion and annual revenue of hundreds of billions of dollars. However, the fine was calculated as a royalty from the sale of each apparatus, that is, the court actually confirmed the justice and the validity of this approach to the definition of payout — meanwhile, it has been criticized by Apple. In the result, Qualcomm receives a lot more than $ 31 million — according to the source, this “new line of attack in a two-year legal battle.”

The jury’s decision came in very handy, because in April will begin consideration of the key claim in this opposition, filed by Apple in early 2017. With it Apple is expected to eliminate what she calls an “illegal business model Qualcomm”. Translated into ordinary language we are talking about licensing patents and selling chipsets to manufacturers of smartphones. Licensing of patents offered by Qualcomm, provides for a fee from the selling price of each device sold, which according to Apple is unfair and illegal.

We note that the jury assessed three patents to Qualcomm in the company’s portfolio 1.41 dollar in the price of one smartphone. According to a representative of Qualcomm, it confirms the validity of the accepted practices of licensing, and three patents deemed infringed in this case represent only a small part of the Qualcomm portfolio, consisting of tens of thousands of patents.

The decision, issued Friday, may come into force in April.
