Consumer group Which is suing Qualcomm, a US manufacturer of computer chips, alleging that it breached UK competition law by taking advantage of its dominance in the patent-licensing and chipset market. This enabled Qualcomm to charge manufacturers such as Apple and Samsung inflated fees for technology licenses, which in turn has been passed on to consumers in the form of higher smartphone prices.
Which is seeking damages for all affected Apple and Samsung smartphones purchased since 1 October 2015 and is seeking a collective total of £482.5m. It estimates that individual consumers could be entitled to up to £30 in damages if the claim is successful.
