The court in China, the Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court, issued two preliminary injunctions against four of Apple's Chinese subsidiaries for patent infringement. The two California-based companies have been entangled in a years-long legal dispute over patent royalties that is being fought out globally.
Apple must respect the court "rather than defy and even trample the Chinese law by leveraging its super economic power and clout," the China Anti-Infringement and Anti-Counterfeit Innovation Strategic Alliance said in an English-language statement on its website on Thursday.
It was not immediately clear how much influence the alliance has.
The Beijing-based alliance is a non-government organization which seeks to protect intellectual property rights, according to state news agency Xinhua. The group's members include several Chinese trade associations, universities, Alibaba, JD.com and Xiaomi and has offices in Hangzhou, Xiamen, Tokyo, Seoul and San Francisco.
"The Alliance has noticed that the four Chinese subsidiaries of Apple Inc. concerned have not performed this order and even refused to receive the written injunction order legally served by the court," the statement said. "Such an act has attracted broad attention, sparked heated discussions and even evoked great indignation in China and abroad."
Apple declined to comment, and Qualcomm did not immediately respond to CNBC 's request for comment.
On Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook lowered fiscal first quarter revenue and gross margin guidance, citing challenges in the Greater China economy that have been exacerbated by trade tensions between the U.S. and China. The stock dropped nearly 10 percent in New York trading Thursday in its worst day in about six years.
Separately, Qualcomm announced Thursday it posted security bonds in order to put into effect a German court order that will ban sales of some iPhones in Germany. The court ruled in December that Apple had infringed on the chipmaker's patents on power-saving technology in smartphones.
