Qualcomm Being Look At by EU Antitrust Monitors

Posted by at 9:05 am on December 8, 2015

Qualcomm LogoAntitrust regulators from the European Union have filed two complaints against Qualcomm, alleging the chip-provider used its might to smite competitors.

The first complaint suggests Qualcomm paid an unnamed customer to use its chips exclusively. The second alleges that Qualcomm employed predatory pricing — selling chips below cost — to force a rival out of the market. Qualcomm said it will defend itself.

“We look forward to demonstrating that competition in the sale of wireless chips has been and remains strong and dynamic, and that Qualcomm’s sales practices have always complied with European competition law,” said Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm general counsel and executive vice president, in a statement provided to media.

Qualcomm supplies application processors and wireless radios to phone and tablet makers. The company has run into legal trouble before, and earlier this year settled a similar case in China.
