黑莓打赢官司:高通需返还8.15亿美元专利费

据外媒报道,黑莓公司周三宣布,经仲裁决定,高通需要向黑莓返还约8.15亿美元的专利费。

这起纠纷始于2016年4月20日。黑莓当时表示,向高通支付了过多的专利授权费。随后,两家公司展开了谈判,试图解决该纠纷。

今日,经仲裁决定,黑莓确实过多地向高通支付了专利授权费。为此,高通被要求向黑莓返还约8.15亿美元。

当然,这还只是一个初步的仲裁决定。黑莓在一份声明中称,5月30日将举行一场听证会,随后会做出最终的赔偿决定,包括利息和律师费。

这起纠纷似乎并未影响两家公司的合作关系。黑莓CEO程守宗(John Chen)今日称,两家公司仍将是对方有价值的技术合作伙伴。黑莓将继续与高通合作,尤其是在汽车安全和专用集成电路方面。

受该消息刺激,黑莓股价在今日盘前交易中一度上涨15%。黑莓股价回升到9美元左右。
