Qualcomm is seeking the help of a Chinese court to get a local smartphone maker, Meizu, to agree to licensing terms for patents that the company broadly agreed to with the Chinese government last year.

The chip company said Friday it has asked the Beijing Intellectual Property Court for a ruling that the terms of a patent license it offered Meizu comply with China’s Anti-Monopoly Law, and the U.S. company’s “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory licensing obligations.”

Qualcomm alleges that Meizu in Zhuhai is refusing to sign the patent agreement although over 100 players, including top Chinese phone makers, have accepted the terms under a new rectification plan agreed with China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) last year.
