Qualcomm accused of unfair trade

South Korean watchdog goes for blood
Wed Mar 11 2009, 18:03

THE SOUTH KOREAN TRADE COMMISSION looks like it is going to regulate wireless chip maker Qualcomm's business practices in the country.

The KFTC is miffed at the way Qualcomm sets prices and integrates multimedia technology into its chipsets, which are used in mobile phones which it says is anti-competetive.

Qualcomm does not think it has done anything wrong, but its rivals claim that it reneged on agreements it made while developing the WCDMA Wideband Code Division Multiple Access standard.

Intel thought it did no wrong too but that didn't stop the KFTC giving it a spank. µ
