EU starts Qualcomm investigation

As was expected

 

Having put the Microsoft inquiry to bed, EU investigators have started the expected investigation into US wireless technologies company Qualcomm for possible abusive business practices.

Qualcomm may have violated EU competition rules by refusing to share licensing terms for its mobile phone technology. EU spokesman Jonathan Todd told reporters that investigators had upgraded their probe to "priority status" to complete the investigation as soon as possible.

The two year probe will look at complaints from six mobile phone companies including Broadcom, NEC, Nokia, LM Ericsson, Panasonic Mobile Communications and Texas Instruments. They claimed that Qualcomm's royalty fees for next-generation mobile phone chips were too high and thus broke agreements among patent holders to keep costs at a reasonable level.
