Qualcomm faces anti-trust charges in China

Written by Nick Farrell



Overcharging claims

China's anti-monopoly watchdog has snarled that the US chipmaker Qualcomm has been overcharging and abusing its market position. This could mean that the company could be fined more than $1 billion.

The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) also said it was in talks with another US technology firm, InterDigital about a possible settlement to a separate anti-monopoly. Foreign firms including Apple are facing tougher scrutiny in the world's second-biggest economy as China targets key industries to protect consumers from bloated prices and second-rate products. You can see how Apple is in trouble.

The watchdog said it received complaints that Qualcomm was charging higher prices in China than it does in other countries.

"We received reports from relevant associations and companies that Qualcomm abuses its dominant position in the market and charges discriminatory fees," Xu Kunlin, who heads the NDRC's anti-monopoly and price supervision bureau, told a press conference in Beijing.
