Wireless chip giant Qualcomm (QCOM), which is being sued by one of its top customers, Apple (AAPL), this afternoon reported fiscal Q1 revenue that was ever-s0-slightly below analysts' expectations, and profit per share that beat by a penny, and forecast results this quarter ever-so-slightly ahead of consensus.

"Yet, we have never raised our royalty rates", Mollenkopf said. Since Apple makes expensive phones, Apple pays high royalties. In its own lawsuits against Samsung and other Android phone makers, Apple asserted that by violating a few of its patents around the design of a device and some touchscreen gestures the company should be entitled to all of the profits those competitors reaped selling phones-100%. "We will prove that Apple's irresponsible claims of extortion are false". Furthermore, the KFTC issued a broad set of guidelines that Qualcomm will have to follow while executing licensing contracts in South Korea subsequent to the formal filing.
This is underscored by Apple's allegation that Qualcomm has been sitting on its old legacy patents and tend to collect royalties the company has nothing to do with. "But there are some patents in our portfolio that are outside those agreements".
The company will supply the company with chips as they duke it out in court. The appeal process will take "quite some time", Rosenberg said.
