Phone Makers Complain To EU About Qualcomm

Six mobile phone manufacturers have filed complaints with the EU, alleging Qualcomm is violating EU anti-competition rules and commitments it made to standards bodies by licensing WCDMA patents at lower royalty rates to handset makers that exclusively buy its chips. It’s a similar complaint to one filed in the US a few months ago by Broadcom, a rival chipmaker. This is just the latest development in a long-running battle over WCDMA patents, and certainly isn’t the first time somebody’s accused Qualcomm of unfairly throwing their weight around.
