Qualcomm-Meizu legal spat continues in US, Germany, France

17 complaints to China’s National Development & Reform Commission weren’t enough.

On Friday, Qualcomm made further claims against manufacturer Meizu in France, Germany and the US about its infringing on the chipmaker’s intellectual property. Meizu, which has used Qualcomm silicon and technology in the past, has said that terms of negotiation for licenses have been unfair and onerous.

The San Diego-based Qualcomm lodged a complaint with the International Trade Commission, a patent infringement action with Mannheim Regional Court, and a request for an infringement-seizure action in France.

Qualcomm complained about Meizu over patent infringements to the NDRC in June. The patents have to do with 3G and 4G connectivity.
