Apple will stop selling the iPhone 7 and 8 devices in Germany after a ban issued by the Munich District Court, according with CNBC.
"Two large courts with two different jurisdictions over the past two weeks have upheld the value of Qualcomm's patents and cited Apple as the culprit by ordering a ban on iPhones in major German and Chinese markets," said Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm's executive vice president. Incorporated.
However, CNBC has announced that Apple will continue to have devices through its mobile and other resellers. Sales will stop at Apple's 15 retail outlets in Germany.
Earlier this month, Qualcomm won a similar case in China, which applies to iPhones 6S, iPhones 6S Plus, iPhones 7, iPhones 7 Plus, iPhones 8, iPhones 8 Plus and iPhone X.
Intel general adviser Steven Rodgers said Qualcomm is joining a pipeline campaign that will reduce innovation and raise prices if it is successful.
"Qualcomm's goal is not to justify its intellectual property rights, but to drive market competition in premium brands and to defend a business model that will ultimately hurt consumers," Rodgers said.
Apple and Qualcomm filed lawsuits in January of 2017 when Cupertino filed a claim for a $ 1 billion dollar compensation because Qualcomm withdrew the payments it owed to Apple as a retaliation for Apple's cooperation with South Korean regulatory bodies.
