The battle between Apple and Qualcomm continues this week in a win for Apple – but the lawsuit is far from over, yet.
According to Apple Insider, a US District Court has ruled that Qualcomm cannot collect Intellectual Property (IP) royalties on Apple’s manufacturing partners until a proper amount is determined. Following this decision, Qualcomm’s immediate task would be to calculate how much money it needs to demand in royalties from Apple and its partners.
That was just the first patent ruling. In the second ruling, the court denied Qualcomm’s motion to drop Apple’s lawsuits. It doesn’t end here. Qualcomm is also being asked to prove how Apple caused IP infringement in all the locations it is suing the company including China, Japan, Taiwan, and the UK.
