EU fines Qualcomm for abuse of dominant market position
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-01-24 14:34:53

The European Commission has fined Qualcomm €997m for abusing its market dominance in LTE baseband chipsets. Qualcomm prevented rivals from competing in the market by making significant payments to a key customer on condition it would not buy from rivals. This is illegal under EU antitrust rules.

Qualcomm sounds like an upstanding company. Of course, they are appealing the decision.
