    Summary of the class action

    On April 30, 2019, the Superior Court authorized Ricky Tenzer to institute a class action against Qualcomm Incorporated.

    In the field of telecommunications, uniform standards reduce competition, but benefit consumers by making devices compatible with each other. The holders of the patents for the technologies covered by such universal standards, such as Qualcomm, must not, however, abuse their position. Holders of such patents make commitments to ensure a fair and reasonable negotiation of the licences with the various manufacturers of cellular devices that must integrate this technology into their devices.

    Qualcomm maintains a dominant position in the baseband processor market, an essential component that enables cellular devices to communicate with each other.

    Qualcomm breached its commitments and abused its dominant position. As a result, members of the group paid an inflated price for their cellular devices.
