    Qualcomm rejects $20 Million Nokia patent payment

    April 12, 2007 (IDG News Service) -- Qualcomm Inc. has rejected a $20 million payment from Nokia Corp. for royalties on patented Qualcomm technology, snuffing out a possible resolution of part of the companies' ongoing intellectual-property dispute.

    A series of long-term licensing agreements between the companies expired on Monday. Nokia said last week that it had paid Qualcomm $20 million to cover licenses for 3G (third-generation) mobile phone technology through the end of the current quarter on June 30. However, the payment was not to extend the deal that expired Monday, Nokia said.

    Qualcomm told Nokia on Wednesday that it had turned down the money "and the accompanying multiple pages of terms upon which Nokia conditioned its payment," Qualcomm said in a press release.

    "Both the amount of the payment and the terms that Nokia sought to unilaterally impose in connection with it are at odds with the parties' 2001 license agreement," Qualcomm said.
