    Qualcomm settle dispute with FTC by pledging US$700 million investment  (2018/08/10)

    Taiwan's fair trade authority has announced that it's dropped a case against Qualcomm, a US-based chipmaker accused of anti-trust violations in Taiwan. According to the settlement terms, Qualcomm will invest 700 million US dollars in Taiwan over the next five years, developing areas like 5G and semiconductors.

    Cell phones rely on mobile processors to access communications networks. Taiwan authorities say that Qualcomm held a monopoly over mobile communications chips and refused to authorize their use by other manufacturers. Last year, Taiwan’s FTC slapped a record NT$23.4 billion fine against the US-based company.

    According to an FTC probe, Qualcomm violated Taiwan law for over seven years, demanding a total of NT$400 billion in licensing fees from local manufacturers. But the FTC announced today that it’s reached an agreement with Qualcomm. According to the settlement, the FTC will keep the NT$2.73 billion in fines it’s already received from Qualcomm. In exchange, the company will make a NT$21.5 billion investment in Taiwan over the next five years.

    They agree to participate in Taiwanese industries including 5G, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence … We took the original NT$23.4 billion fine and adjusted it down to NT$2.73 billion. The remainder, you can understand, you can imagine -- it’s all going to be turned into investment and even GDP growth.

    The FTC and the Ministry of Economic Affairs say the turn of events in the Qualcomm case will benefit the development of semiconductor, mobile communications and 5G communications technology in the nation. Both Qualcomm and the FTC have taken a step back, reaching a settlement in place of the original fine.

    高通5年投資台灣7億美元 與公平會和解

    去年10月公平會以濫用獨占為由,對高通祭出234億元的史上最高罰鍰,但考量訴訟程序曠日費時,加上高通承諾在台灣進行為期五年,7億美元相當台幣215億元的產業投資方案,最後公平會決議雙方以和解收場。

    手機內要裝置行動晶片,才能上網通訊,但大廠高通利用在"行動通訊基頻晶片",市場的獨占性,拒絕授權晶片給其他製造商,去年公平會以濫用獨占為由,祭出234億元的罰鍰。

    公平會調查,高通違法期間長達7年,向台灣廠商索取授權金總額約新台幣4000億,但如今公平會宣布和高通達成和解,除了已繳納的27.3億元罰鍰,高通還承諾未來5年將投資台灣7億美元,約新台幣215億元。

    [[公平會委員 洪財隆]]
    “願意參與台灣包括5G、物聯網AI人工智慧,我們將原本234億新台幣整個調降到27億3000萬新台幣,其餘的部分可以理解可以想像,全部轉為實質投資甚至創造GDP。”

    高通案大逆轉,公平會與經濟部相信有利於半導體、行動通訊和5G技術發展,決定雙方各退一步,用和解方案取代原處分。
