QUALCOMM Refutes Broadcom's Antitrust Claims

Responding Broadcom's recently filed antitrust complaints, QUALCOMM said the claims are "without merit", noting that it has granted more than 130 licenses to its essential patents to a broad range of companies. QUALCOMM further claims that it has the most extensively licensed portfolio in the cellular industry. The company also said the WCDMA market is highly competitive with many companies selling commercial WCDMA chipsets and that it has supplied only a small percentage of the WCDMA chipsets sold to date.
