On May 21, California federal judge Lucy Koh ordered a sweeping injunction against cellphone chipmaker Qualcomm, requiring the company to renegotiate its licenses and alter its business model. Qualcomm’s “no license, no chips” policy, which required cellphone manufacturers to license Qualcomm’s patents in order to access Qualcomm’s modem chips, was challenged by the Federal Trade Commission in January 2017. Apple also sued Qualcomm for its patent-licensing practices but, in April of this year, reached a surprising settlement on the first day of trial.
