Apple Counters Qualcomm with Patent Lawsuit of Its Own

Apple Counters Qualcomm with Patent Lawsuit of Its Own

In the filing, Apple says that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors are at fault. Apple started seeking those patents several years before Qualcomm started seeking the patents it claims against Apple in this litigation.

Qualcomm filed three motions in Federal Court this week seeking monetary damages, saying that Apple infringed on 16 patents. Qualcomm is alleged to be infringing on eight battery life patents.

In July, Qualcomm pitched to the courts its particular concerns about some of the battery tech Apple was using in its iPhones and iPads.

The patents describe technologies that allow a certain part of a phone's processor to only draw the minimum power needed and turn off when it's not needed. The iPhone maker states that it filed for battery life patents long before Qualcomm went through with its own battery life patents, and further states that Qualcomm's infringement claims appear "to be a blatant effort to take credit for the innovation of others".

The company's request to the International Trade Commission could get iPhones like the ones with Intel chips blocked from being sold in the U.S. In a statement to the ITC, Apple said it wouldn't raise iPhone prices because of lower supply and high demand.

Black Friday was huge for gun sales
The objective of the review is to determine why necessary information was not being properly reported to the NICS database . The gunman who killed 26 people at the First Baptist Church earlier this month should never have been carrying a gun.

The legal bickering between Apple and Qualcomm shows no signs of backing down.

Apple declined to comment on the new cases, referring to its earlier claims in its Wednesday filing that the company has developed its own technology and patents to power its iPhones.

In January, Apple sued Qualcomm for almost $1 billion in patent royalty rebates that Qualcomm allegedly withheld from Apple. In a related suit, Qualcomm sued the contract manufacturers that make Apple's phones, but Apple joined in to defend them.

Separately, Qualcomm is facing a lawsuit from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over numerous same pricing practices Apple names in its complaints.
