    China court bans sales of older iPhone models in Apple-Qualcomm global battle

    SAN FRANCISCO/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - A Chinese court has ordered a sales ban of some older Apple Inc (AAPL.O) iPhone models in China for violating two patents of chipmaker Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O), though intellectual property lawyers said enforcement of the ban was likely still a distant threat. The case, brought by Qualcomm, is part of a global patent dispute between the two U.S. companies that includes dozens of lawsuits. It creates uncertainty over Apple's business in one of its biggest markets at a time when concerns over waning demand for new iPhones are battering its shares.

    The Chipmaker Caught in U.S. Assault on China's Tech Ambitions

    Less than a month ago, Jinhua was full-speed ahead on an enormous undertaking financed by the local government that blanketed its corner of the city with bristling power plants, hulking workers’ dormitories and modern research labs. It was within months of a deadline to kick off full-scale production of some 60,000 wafers a month, a key step to giving China a competitive producer of memory chips used in smartphones. Now, uncertainty shrouds a company President Xi Jinping’s touted as one of three future domestic champions of chipmaking.

    China says U.S. controls on semiconductor firm break WTO rules

    The U.S. decision to cut off a Chinese state-backed chipmaker from U.S. suppliers amid allegations the firm stole intellectual property breaks World Trade Organization rules and aims to protect a U.S. monopoly, China told a WTO meeting on Tuesday. Last month the U.S. Commerce Department put Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd on a list of entities that cannot buy components, software and technology goods from U.S. firms. U.S. semiconductor company Micron Technology Inc (MU.O), a maker of memory chips with factories in Virginia and Utah, has accused Jinhua and Taiwanese partner United Microelectronics Corp of stealing its chip designs in a lawsuit in California.

    [$$] U.S. Adopts New Battle Plan to Fight China’s Theft of Trade Secrets

    The Trump administration is broadening its China trade battle beyond tariffs with a plan to use export controls, indictments and other tools to counter the theft of intellectual property, according to people familiar with the matter. The opening move in the new strategy came in the form of a recent crackdown by the Commerce and Justice Departments on a Chinese state-owned chip maker, which the U.S. administration accused of stealing trade secrets from Idaho-based Micron Technology Inc., the people said. U.S. officials are looking at additional cases where they could use a similar combination of tools to fight Chinese IP theft, the people added.

    China's ties with Taiwan chip firms under scrutiny as U.S. trade war heats up

    Washington's decision to cut off U.S. supplies to a Chinese chip-maker spotlights mounting tensions over China's drive to be a global player in computer chips and the ways in which Taiwan companies are helping it get there. Shut out of major global semiconductor deals in recent years, China has been quietly strengthening cooperation with Taiwan chip firms by encouraging the transfer of chip-making expertise into the mainland. Taiwan chip giant United Microelectronics Corp (UMC) last week halted research and development activities with its Chinese state-backed partner Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd, following the U.S. move.

    Theft of Micron Chip Secrets Is an Embarrassment for Taiwan

    As a critical partner in the nexus between U.S. clients and the Chinese supply chain, the last thing Taiwan needs right now is to become known as a place that can’t be trusted. Weak enforcement is endemic in Taiwan, from insider trading rules to know-your-customer requirements, and I suspect that includes many more cases of intellectual property theft. According to the U.S. Justice Department, UMC executives were the front for a Chinese plan to steal semiconductor secrets from Boise, Idaho-based Micron Technology Inc. Even before jumping into bed with state-owned Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co., UMC had a history of questionable deals in China.
