Qualcomm sues four Apple contract manufacturers | Reuters

Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O) filed a complaint against Foxconn Technology Group and three other Apple Inc (AAPL.O) contract manufacturers for not paying royalties, firing the latest salvo in its fight with the iPhone maker.The other manufacturers listed by Qualcomm were Pegatron Corp (4938.TW), Wistron Corp (3231.TW) and Compal Electronics Inc (2324.TW).Apple sued Qualcomm in January, accusing it of overcharging for chips and refusing to pay some $1 billion in promised rebates.Qualcomm said in the complaint that Apple is trying to force the company to agree to a “unreasonable demand for a below-market direct license”.Apple could not immediately be reached for a comment.Qualcomm said last month that Apple had decided to withhold royalty payments to its contract manufacturers that are owed to the chipmaker, for sales made in the first quarter of 2017, until the dispute is resolved in court.
