Apple Hit With $25K Per Day Fine In Qualcomm Antitrust Case
Recently, we saw that how the giant chip manufacturer Qualcomm has accused the tech giant Apple of infringing its patents. As it is well known, at the outset there are very strong questions of the trade forum that both companies in the bar of the courts.
If Qualcomm initially accused Apple of infringing its patents, even wanting to take this case to its ultimate consequences, now the saga reverses the position. In a new coup, Apple accuses Qualcomm of infringing its patents.
As the giant chip maker, Qualcomm and the tech giant Apple, despite being partners, do not get along too well as we already hinted. The Cupertino firm Apple needs some Qualcomm hardware, and Qualcomm is not going to say no to the good dollars from Steve’s firm, all in order. However, the war of patents that are on hand is something old, and this year, with the iPhone X, things are starting to get ugly.
The case that puts face to face the tech giant Apple and the giant chip maker Qualcomm seems to get last! As millions of documents have already been extracted but it seems that everything is not yet justified clearly.
After certain documents have been requested and the tech giant Apple has not yet delivered them, a San Jose, Calif., Court judge sanctioned the tech giant Apple for $25,000 as a fine per day until those documents were filed. In addition, there is a deadline to do so, or the fines will get much higher.
A judge has sanctioned the tech giant Apple for a fine of $25,000 a day for delaying filing documents relating to the FTC case against the giant chip maker Qualcomm, where it accuses the company of the chips forcing the iPhone maker to use its chips exclusively.
Magistrate Nathanael Cousins of San Jose, Calif., Ordered the Cupertino company, of course, the tech giant Apple to pay that amount every day until the tech giant Apple delivering the necessary proofs.
The Cupertino company, of course, the tech giant Apple began paying December 16 this figure which, according to the figures, is what the tech giant Apple earns the profit every 16 seconds in the sale of the iPhone, according to the data from the last fiscal year.
The tech giant Apple has until December 29 to file documents or face even more severe fines, according to a court filing closed on Thursday.
The tech giant Apple responded by saying that for this FTC process, it has already produced and delivered more than 2.6 million documents by December 15 and any dispute that the giant chip maker Qualcomm would like to increase was premature.
“We have already produced millions of documents for this case and we are working hard to deliver millions more than were requested in an unprecedented period. We plan to appeal this decision” as the tech giant Apple’s spokesman Josh Rosenstock said.
The lawsuit on the FTC alleges that the giant chip maker Qualcomm unfairly excludes competitors by having the tech giant Apple to use only its chips in exchange for lower licensing fees.
