Apple device makers not in talks to settle Qualcomm royalties spat

Apple Inc.'s Taiwan-based contract manufacturers are not in talks to settle their legal battle with Qualcomm Inc. over the latter's claims of non-payment of royalties, Reuters reported.

Lawyer Ted Boutrous, representing the device assemblers, denied Qualcomm's statement that there were settlement talks, especially since the U.S. chipmaker made the "same sort of unreasonable demands" that led to the dispute.

The device makers are preparing for the trial of the case, which is set for April 2019, according to Reuters.

In July 2017, Foxconn Technology Co. Ltd., its parent Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd., Compal Electronics Inc., Pegatron Corp. and Wistron Corp., charged Qualcomm with violating two sections of the Sherman Act, a U.S. antitrust law that prohibits unlawful restraints on market competition. The move came after Qualcomm sued the Apple contractors for alleged copyright infringement and breach of license agreements, with the iPhone-maker supposedly compelling the manufacturers to suspend their payment of royalties for Qualcomm's licensed technologies.

Qualcomm was earlier granted a preliminary injunction against Apple banning the import and sale of several iPhone models in China that were found to have violated two of the chipmaker's patents. The iPhone-maker, which is appealing the decision, will be forced to settle its spat with Qualcomm if the ban succeeds.
