(Bloomberg) – Qualcomm Inc. says its battle with Apple Inc. about how much the chipmaker can charge for important patented technology used in iPhones and iPads becomes expensive.
"They are trying to destroy our business," says Qualcomm attorney Evan Chesler at a Friday in San Diego federal court. "They are now $ 7 billion in royalties. The house is on fire, and it is $ 7 billion of property damage right now. "
Apple claims that Qualcomm uses its intellectual property to bully customers to pay for large royalties even as it tries to increase control over whether patents are valid. "You can not just let Qualcomm go away from this," said Apple's lawyer, Ruffin Cordell, the judge in Friday's hearing.
