Qualcomm wins import ban on iPhones in China

Qualcomm Inc. said it won a ruling in China against Apple Inc. that bans the sale of some iPhone models in that country.

The Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court ruled that Apple is infringing on two Qualcomm patents and issued injunctions against the sale of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the San Diego, California-based chipmaker said in a statement Monday.

Nice escalation of licensing fees: It applies to all product sold, not only those using Qualcomm chips and is based on a final selling price.

No problem, it will be no more Qualcomm based iPhones, more space for competition. And when Qualcomm is charged for its anticompetetive practice, there will be much smaller income to cover hefty fines.
