Qualcomm respond to complaints

Qualcomm Incorporated has stated that, although it has not seen the actual complaint, the reported allegations made to the European Commission are factually inaccurate and legally meritless.
The accusation by Ericsson, NEC, Broadcom, Nokia, Panasonic and Texas Instruments that Qualcomm has not lived up to its commitments to standard-setting organizations to license its essential patents on fair and reasonable terms is belied by the more than 130 licenses that Qualcomm has granted to a broad range of companies, among them five of the six reported claimants. These licenses, including agreements with the world's largest and most sophisticated manufacturers of wireless telecommunications equipment, make Qualcomm's patents the most extensively licensed portfolio in the cellular industry. The widespread market acceptance of Qualcomm's licensing program conclusively demonstrates that Qualcomm's licensing practices are fair, reasonable and pro-competitive.
