Qualcomm to Fight South Korea's $865M Patent Fine

Qualcomm said that it would fight a ruling by South Korea’s top trade regulator that fined the San Diego wireless company $865 million for violating competition laws with its patent licensing practices. The fine comes after a 20-month investigation by the Korea Fair Trade Commission, which wants Qualcomm to change “unfair” business practices in the way it licenses its 3G/4G intellectual property.
