Qualcomm files complaint against Meizu over mobile devices techStaff writer ▼ | June 24, 2016
Qualcomm has filed a complaint against Meizu in the Beijing Intellectual Property Court.
Patent "Qualcomm has negotiated extensively"
The complaint also seeks a ruling that the offered patent license terms should form the basis for a patent license with Meizu for Qualcomm's fundamental technologies patented in China for use in mobile devices, including those relating to 3G (WCDMA and CDMA2000) and 4G (LTE) wireless communications standards.
"Qualcomm has negotiated extensively and in good faith with Meizu to sign a patent license agreement consistent with the terms of the rectification plan submitted by Qualcomm to, and accepted by, China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in 2015.
"Although Qualcomm would have preferred to reach a resolution with Meizu without the need for litigation, Meizu, unfortunately, has been unwilling to negotiate in good faith and enter into a license agreement on the rectification plan terms while unfairly expanding its business through the use of Qualcomm's innovations without compensating Qualcomm for the use of Qualcomm's valuable technologies.
"In contrast, more than 100 other companies have already accepted the rectification plan terms, including the largest Chinese mobile device suppliers," Qualcomm said. ■
