The legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm is continuing to get uglier as Qualcomm is now seeking to ban imports and stop sales of the iPhone according to a new lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims that Apple has infringed on six Qualcomm patents that improve battery life on the iPhone. Now Qualcomm wants Apple to pay up for these trespasses and in the process, it's looking to stop sales of the iPhone by banning its imports from China.
"Apple continues to use Qualcomm's technology while refusing to pay for it," stated Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm executive vice president and general counsel.
Qualcomm filed the complaints through the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California and United States International Trade Commission.
It is unclear at the moment how many iPhones or which models would be affected. You might remember that a similar outcome happened in Apple's legal battle with Samsung. It sought to halt sales of the Samsung phones, and it ultimately did, but only of older devices that weren't big sellers by the time of the court rulings.
Apple started off the legal war with Qualcomm by filing a suit for $1 billion claiming Qualcomm was charging it for technology it wasn't using. It subsequently followed this by discontinuing royalty payments to Qualcomm. Qualcomm followed by counter-suing Apple and the legal battle has been escalating ever since.
