Effective October 1, 2012, Qualcomm Incorporated completed a corporate reorganization in which the assets of certain of its businesses and groups, as well as the stock of certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries, were contributed to Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated that was created for purposes of the reorganization.
In addition, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. (QCA) has since transferred certain of its assets, including substantially all of its products and services, to QTI, its parent corporation.
Qualcomm Technology Licensing (QTL), our patent licensing business, continues to be operated by Qualcomm Incorporated, which continues to own the vast majority of our patent portfolio. Substantially all of our products and services businesses, including our semiconductor business, QCT, as well as substantially all of our engineering, research and development functions, are now operated by QTI and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, including Qualcomm Technologies International, Ltd.
Neither QTI nor any of its subsidiaries has any right, power or authority to grant any licenses or other rights under or to any patents owned by Qualcomm Incorporated. In addition, no use of this website and/or documentation, including but not limited to the downloading of any software, programs, manuals, or other materials of any kind or nature whatsoever, and no purchase or use of any products or services, grants any licenses or other rights, of any kind or nature whatsoever, under or to any patents owned by Qualcomm Incorporated or any of its subsidiaries. A separate patent license or other similar patent-related agreement from Qualcomm Incorporated is needed to make, have made, use, sell, import, and dispose of any products or services that would infringe any patent owned by Qualcomm Incorporated in the absence of the grant by Qualcomm Incorporated of a patent license or other applicable rights under such patent.
