South Korean court rejects Qualcomm’s request to suspend antitrust body’s order

SEOUL (Reuters) – A South Korean court on Monday rejected Qualcomm Inc’s (QCOM.O) request to suspend an order by the country’s antitrust agency to take corrective action on the way it licenses patents.In December, the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) fined Qualcomm 1.03 trillion won ($912.34 million) for what it called unfair business practices in patent licensing and modem chip sales.The regulator also ordered the U.S. firm to negotiate in good faith with rival chipmakers on patent licensing, and renegotiate chip supply agreements with mobile phone makers if requested.If the order is upheld, such measures would affect Qualcomm’s dealings with major tech firms including Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Intel Corp (INTC.O), Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL].

Charlie

 

Since hijacking a plane to Cuba in 1971 to avoid charges of killing a police officer, the Cuban government has provided Charlie Hill refuge, allowing him to live a life beyond the reach of the F.B.I. In a letter to his nine-year-old son, the film takes an intimate look at his account of the events leading up to fleeing the US. All of it plays out against the backdrop of the opening up of US-Cuba relations, which could result in Cuba allowing Hill’s extradition.
