On Tuesday, I submitted them to the U. s. District court Judge Lucy Koh, in addition to an important decision that is going to change its business model as it pursues an appeal. The slides from internal Apple presentation of the iPhone-maker, described the goals of “Create Leverage for the Construction of the Press” and “the Pain We are Financially.”

The slides were included in the opening summary, We have separate civil action lawsuit filed against Apple in April, but has never been put to We have to previous tests with the FTC. If Koh accepts it, then they would become a part of the record, and that the higher courts will review it when I finally files for an appeal.

FTC officials on Thursday said the presentation of the slide was “inaccurate, unfair, and intrinsically wrong.”

The slides were included in Qualcomm’s opening arguments in Apple trial, in which it is indicated what the lawyers described as a targeted campaign by Apple for the developers of Qualcomm’s patent licensing model. In them, Apple will discuss how to use the “devaluing” of the nature of the patents held by Qualcomm, and the Reduction of the company’s Net Royalties to Qualcomm.”

The COMMISSION said that it had not had a formal opportunity to object to the making of the slides.

“Was it a document that has survived as a high-priority matter, an Apple and a witness have testified in order to, among other things, the document of the context and the purpose and the meaning of the above language,” the FTC wrote on Thursday.

Qualcomm, which supplies modem chips to connect phone to wireless data networks, which has been fighting for a freeze on the Koh’s ruling, that it is possible that you can cut of its patent royalties of a few dollars per phone is used for.

The Smartphone maker, LG Electronics Inc is in contrast to Qualcomm’s efforts to have the closing of the proceedings. The phone maker said that it is the bargaining chip to supply and license agreements with Qualcomm, and could be forced to sign another unfair deal, except for the Koh-protection in place. The COMMISSION is also against Qualcomm’s move on.

On Tuesday, We have responded to LGE’s claims by saying that it will deliver the chips to the end of the Korean phone maker, despite the fact that the license negotiations have ground to a halt, and LGE had not licensed by Qualcomm earlier this year, the exact scenario is that that the phone makers have argued, was the prompt We have to cut off a chip as the Koh ruling will not be enforced.
