Apple, Qualcomm spat intensifies, manufacturers drawn in

The other manufacturers listed in the filing by Qualcomm were Pegatron Corp 4938.TW , Wistron Corp 3231.TW and Compal Electronics Inc 2324.TW .

"Our license agreements with Apple's manufacturers remain valid and enforceable", Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm's general counsel said in a statement. Qualcomm said it is seeking an order to require all of those companies to comply with "long-standing contractual obligations" to Qualcomm, and is also seeking declaratory relief and damages. Qualcomm petitioned U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, who ruled against Samsung in its case with Apple, to throw out the case in April.

Apple claims that Qualcomm is overcharging for patent-related license fees on iPhone sales, a point Qualcomm disputes.

Mobile chip maker Qualcomm has filed a breach of contract complaint against Apple's iPhone and iPad manufacturers, the latest in an ongoing dispute.

Now chipmaker Intel made a decision to add to the discussion and filed an Amicus Brief in opposition to Qualcomm's motion to dismiss the FTC's complaint. "We're suing to make the point that others shouldn't be used by Apple to advance this agenda they have of attacking us".

It said at the time: "For many years Qualcomm has unfairly insisted on charging royalties for technologies they have nothing to do with".

Warriors trounce Spurs, take 2-0 series lead
The Spurs defeated the Houston Rockets in game six without Leonard in order to advance to the Western Conference Finals. This injury is actually the same that kept Leonard out of Game 6 of San Antonio's elimination game against the Rockets.

Apple brought its own separate case against Qualcomm shortly after, suing for roughly $1 billion and alleging the company is "charging royalties for technologies they have nothing to do with" and "withholding almost $1 billion in payments from Apple as retaliation for responding truthfully to law enforcement agencies investigating them".

Qualcomm last month sharply cut its guidance for the current quarter when it became clear that Apple would continue withholding reimbursements from the contract manufacturers.

"Pay for what you take and if you don't want to pay for it, don't take it", he said. "Moreover, Apple has agreed to indemnify defendants for any damages they may incur as a result of breaching their agreements with Qualcomm, further demonstrating Apple's strong-arm tactics".

A million Lalus will rise, says RJD chief after tax raids
There are allegations of Benami deals worth about Rs 1,000 crore and subsequent tax evasion", a senior official told the news agency.

"We are suing to get our money", Rosenberg said. These royalties amount to a tax on the manufacturers' use of baseband processors manufactured by Qualcomm's competitors, a tax that excludes these competitors and harms competition. He likened the resistance to pay for the use of Qualcomm technology to someone walking into an Apple store and refusing to pay full price for a smartphone.
