Chinese Court Sides With Qualcomm In Patent Dispute With Apple


According to Reuters, Qualcomm won a preliminary order from a Chinese court banning the sale of several older Apple Inc iPhone models in China. The injunction will also prohibit importing the iPhone 6, 7, 8, and X to China. The chipmaker sued Apple over two patents which are used in smart devices. But instead of violating hardware patents, Qualcomm accuses Apple of using two software patents. The first patent covers a software feature for editing and resizing photos on a phone, while the second involves using a touchscreen to manage apps. Qualcomm general counsel Don Rosenberg said the injunctions are now effective, adding that they apply to specific features, and not Apple's operating system.

  • Apple Gets Chinese Court Favor In Patent Dispute

    Xinhua news agency reported, in design patent disputes between the Cupertino, California company and a domestic phone-maker, a Chinese court has ruled in favor of Apple. The ruling overturns a ban on selling iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones in China. Last May, after Shenzhen Baili Marketing Services lodged a complaint, a Beijing patent regulator ordered Apple's Chinese subsidiary and a local retailer Zoomflight to stop selling the iPhones. The regulatir claimed that the patent for the design of its mobile phone 100c was being infringed by the iPhone sales. Saying Apple and Zoomflight did not violate Shenzhen Baili's design patent for 100c phones, the Beijing Intellectual Property Court on Friday revoked the ban.

  • Chinese Court Halts Some iPhone Sales Over Qualcomm Dispute

    According to CNN, a Chinese court banned the sale and import of the iPhone. The court's decision covers most models of Apple's smartphone, but the ban does not include the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus or iPhone XR. The decision is part of an ongoing legal dispute between Apple and Qualcomm. In the lawsuit, Qualcomm claims that Apple violated two of its patents for the iPhone 6, 7, 8, and X, including their variants, like the iPhone 8 Plus. The two patents allow users to edit and resize photos on a phone, and to manage apps using a touchscreen. Although the iPhone models in question are not out-right banned, a Chinese court granted two preliminary injunctions requested by Qualcomm, to prohibit their sale and import.

  • Apple Helps Wall Street

    On Monday Wall Street fell for a fourth day, sending the S&P 500 to an eight-month low, with banks, energy and health stocks leading losses on growing concerns over global growth, the U.S.-China trade war and uncertainty over Brexit. But the S&P and Dow Industrials, which have already lost all their gains for the year in a 4.5 percent slide last week, came off their session lows. Reuters reports the bounce came as Apple’s shares sharply cut their losses, which also assisted the Nasdaq reverse course and post slight gains.

  • Tech Group Sides With Apple In Qualcomm's iPhone Ban Dispute

    A group representing major technology companies has aligned itself against Qualcomm Inc in its legal dispute with Apple Inc by calling on regulators to reject Qualcomm's bid to ban the import of iPhones. They argued that barring Apple from importing foreign-assembled iPhones that use Intel Corp chips - as Qualcomm has requested - would cause "significant shocks to supply" for phones and would hurt consumers. Qualcomm supplies so-called modem chips to Apple, which help iPhones and iPads connect to cellular data networks. The two have been locked in a sprawling legal battle in which Apple has objected to Qualcomm's business model of requiring customers to sign patent license agreements before buying chips. In turn, Qualcomm has accused Apple of directing its contract manufacturers like Foxconn to withhold license payments in a bid to hurt Qualcomm. The conflict has taken a toll on Qualcomm's profit outlook. Earlier this month, Qualcomm sued Apple on separate allegations that Apple infringed six patents around making iPhones work better without draining the battery. Simultaneously, Qualcomm filed a complaint with the U.S. ITC seeking to ban iPhones that use chips "other than those supplied by Qualcomm affiliates." Apple began using Intel chips in the iPhone 7.
