Actually, shill, no they are not in the right.
What Apple is demanding is better rights and lower prices than the rest of the industry.
Basically they are used to suppliers bending over backwards to meet any price Apple demands just for the right to sell to Apple, but as Qualcomm is one of the free large enough to not need to do that, Apple are incensed.
How dare Qualcomm have a backbone and tell Apple that it must fairly pay the same rates as others?
To punish Qualcomm for stepping out of love, Apple violated contacts in several ways including lowering performance of Qualcomm chips artificially, and withholding payments.
Then when even that didn't force Qualcomm to tug their forelock and been for forgiveness, Apple got some friends of theirs in the government to start an 'investigation' to try and force Qualcomm hand.
All because Apple are being told to pay THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE.
