Qualcomm Files Lawsuits in China to Ban Apple iPhones

October 13, 2017, 5:39 PM UTC

Qualcomm filed lawsuits in China, seeking to halt the manufacture and sale of Apple’s iPhones in the country, Bloomberg reported on Friday.

Qualcomm filed the suits in a Beijing intellectual property court, claiming patent infringement and is seeking injunctive relief, Bloomberg said, citing a Qualcomm spokeswoman.

Apple’s shares(AAPL) were up marginally, while Qualcomm shares (QCOM) were little changed in afternoon trading.

Apple is waging a global legal battle on Qualcomm’s long-held practice of charging a percentage of the total price of iPhones and other Apple devices as a licensing fee for its patents.
