Qualcomm fined $773M by Taiwanese regulators over antitrust violations

Qualcomm Inc. CEO Steve Mollenkopf

Qualcomm Inc QCOM.O faces an antitrust fine in Taiwan, the latest in a years-long streak of regulatory setbacks to its business model that comes as it also fights USA regulators and iPhone maker Apple Inc AAPL.O in court over numerous same legal issues. That works out to around $773 million US.

The commission determined that Qualcomm has been violating antitrust rules for at least seven years and collected NT$400 billion in licensing fees from local companies during that time.

The Taiwanese regular further stated that "Qualcomm holds big number of standard essential patents in CDMA, WCDMA and LTE segments and is the dominant provider of CDMA, WCDMA and LTE baseband chips".

Qualcomm has been fined by regulators in several Asian countries and the European Union, and is embroiled in a legal dispute over royalties with Apple.
