Qualcomm disputes Japanese competition board findings


If an order comes, Qualcomm will seek a stay of the order and will request a full hearing and review, it said.

In late July, the Korea Fair Trade Commission issued a US$200 million fine against Qualcomm, after ruling that certain discounts the chip maker offers Korean customers violate competition laws. That ruling followed complaints that Broadcom and two South Korean chip makers filed with the trade commission charging Qualcomm with violating Korean antitrust regulations. Qualcomm has said it plans to appeal the ruling in Korean courts.
