Intel Accuses Qualcomm Of Many Monopolistic Practices

Intel has issued another filing in support of Apple's case against Qualcomm. In a statement made to the International Trade Commission, the company accused Qualcomm of abusing its market position by failing to license patents at a fair rate. Those licensing practices have come under fire from some regulators and Apple's lawsuit is based around them.

Qualcomm has its own legal battle against Apple, which Intel asserts is meant to get rid of Qualcomm's only remaining rival in the mobile chip industry, namely Intel itself.

Among the ways it has abused its position is by offering Apple lower rates when exclusively using its chips, something that has limited Intel's ability to compete.
