Chip maker and electronics giant Intel has just issued a stern statement defending against the recent claims made by Qualcomm. Intel stated that it respects the intellectual property, but more than that, it respects truth, candor and fair competition. The company went all out by calling Qualcomm’s business operation as unlawful ‘no license, no chips’ regime. Intel also noted that that the anti-competitive practices by Qualcomm about licensing to have access to its chips have attracted fines worth $975 million in China, $850 million in South Korea, $1.2 billion in Europe, and $773 million in Taiwan. The response also noted that Qualcomm is under investigation in Japan and the United States for the anti-competitive practices.
