Federal Trade Commission v. Qualcomm Inc.

On behalf of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), supported expert Carl Shapiro in litigation against Qualcomm, which holds a portfolio of patents essential to cellular communication standards. The FTC alleged that Qualcomm used its dominant position as a supplier of modem chips to charge supra-FRAND royalties, impose anticompetitive supply and licensing terms on cell phone manufacturers, and weaken competitors. The reports described why the conduct is anticompetitive and profitable for Qualcomm.
