Qualcomm settles vastly reduced Taiwan antitrust fine

phys.org -

phys.org—US chipmaking giant Qualcomm on Friday agreed a sharply reduced fine with Taiwan after officials said it had harmed market competition and manipulated prices, as it faces a number of probes worldwide.

Qualcomm settles $774 million Taiwan antitrust suit, reducing fine to $93 million. Qualcomm doesn't have the best track record when it comes to monopolistic business practices. As a result, it's gotten itself tied up in numerous regulatory battles with companies and government agencies across the world.
