Qualcomm Fights Apple’s Attempt to Move Battleground to Britaintechnicalstudio | March 27, 2018 | 0 | Tech News
The saga of Apple’s war with Qualcomm over its lucrative use of patents has spilled into a British court. But Qualcomm says their legal fight should stay firmly across the Atlantic.
Qualcomm asked Judge Paul Morgan on Tuesday to declare the British court has no right to determine whether it breached competition laws because the matter will effectively be settled in California, where Apple has been battling the chipmaker since May 2017. Qualcomm says Apple’s complaints have no relevant connection with England and Wales.
The central issues of the dispute – including Qualcomm’s licensing practices and chipset supply arrangements – “are already the subject of the proceedings in the Southern District of California,” the San Diego-based company said in its court filings.
