The patent licensing battle between Apple and Qualcomm keeps getting more heated. Qualcomm filed suit against Apple on Wednesday in a California state court, alleging the iPhone maker breached a software license contract and used proprietary code with competitor Intel.
Qualcomm wants a court to declare Apple breached the agreement and award damages, among other demands.
"As the direct and proximate result of Apple's conduct, Qualcomm has suffered significant damages in an amount to be proven at trial," the filing said.
The suit is the latest development in what has been a lengthy legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm. In January Apple first filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Qualcomm, alleging it commanded "royalties that they had nothing to do with."
