I don't think so. My guess is that Qualcomm had a cheaper license and wants to use the terms of that one instead of Nuvia's license, which may have higher royalties per device. Qualcomm disagreed, hence the lawsuit. As Arm put a lot of effort into Nuvia, they're rightly not okay with this bypassing of Nuvia's license.

If Arm is being greedy and sees this as an opportunity to ask much higher royalties, then this process may hurt Arm, but if they're reasonable and my theory is correct, I don't think this will hurt Arm. Either way, this lawsuit gives Arm a much stronger bargaining position, so I think Qualcomm will settle soon, as I don't think they have any grounds to win this case.
