The details are important: *Qualcomm* committed fraud
So let’s look at what the original Qualcomm lawsuit claimed, compared to what the courts eventually decided….
Q claimed that because the actual inventor (Sheida Alan) was *related to* a Q employee, but not herself employed by Q, that the Q contract with their employee somehow gave them direct IP rights over her invention. This is indeed a central part of Q’s employment contract, written explicitly (I’ve been employed there and had to sign), and it is blatantly illegal. They have repeatedly threatened dozens of separate people in various situations in many countries, and it is really good to know that US courts have finally ruled that *Qualcomm’s claim is a lie*. And that Q have knowingly misrepresented the law, in writing, and continue to do so, to their employees. It’s fraud. They’ve “persuaded” many people to sign over rights that they held perfectly legally….sometimes to the extent of calling in bailiffs.
Q claimed that the technology was invented by Arabi, not Alan, and their initial sworn affidavit claimed they had documentary evidence of this. This turned out to be another lie. There was no evidence, and when required to produce such evidence they withdrew the claim. Another instance of blatant corporate fraud.
Q claimed “wire fraud”, and that they had much documentary evidence of this. Again, when it came to court, poof,nothing at all other than empty allegation. Trump would be so proud.
Literally the only thing Q said which turned out not to be a lie, was that Taneja hid where the other investment came from (Arabi). But all the other points, Q affirmed *under oath*, and the court found they were pure baseless allegation. It’s Q execs who should really be doing jail time for this.
