 A German court ruled that Apple infringed Qualcomms patent or banned the sale of some of its mobile phones.


Overseas Networks Dec. 20 (local time Dec. 20), a German court ruled that the manufacturer of the iPhone, Apple, infringed a hardware patent of Qualcomm and said that Apple could not continue to sell some models of the iPhone with special components in Germany.

Judge Matthias Zigann told the court that the ruling would not take effect immediately if Apple appealed, Reuters reported. At present, Apple has not commented on this matter. The case is the third major effort by Qualcomm to prevent Apple from making profits. Qualcomm sued Apple in Munich District Court in July last year in the hope of obtaining a ban on the continued sale of some of the iPhones in Germany and demanding compensation from Apple. On October 11, a court in Munich rejected Qualcomms case of seeking a ban on the sale of the iPhone in Germany, and Qualcomm filed an appeal. At the same time, Apple has accused Qualcomm of engaging in anti-competitive business practices to protect its monopoly on so-called modem chips. The Federal Trade Commission will bring a lawsuit against Qualcomms business practices, which will be heard in California next month.
