Nokia Sues Apple for Rotten Infringement

Nokia announced that it has filed a second lawsuit against Apple, alleging that Apple iPhone and iPad 3G violate five patents that belong to Nokia. The patents in question relate are responsible for Nokia’s success— technologies that determine how location information can be used within applications, speech and data transmission, and antenna design. Apple has yet to respond.

According to Paul Melin, General Manager, Patent Licensing at Nokia, “We have taken this step to protect the results of our pioneering development and to put an end to continued unlawful use of Nokia’s innovation.”

The two companies have been playing lawsuit-tag since late 2009, when Nokia sued Apple over wireless patents, and Apple counter sued Nokia.  Although the U.S. International Trade Commission has agreed to investigate Apple’s claims against Nokia, neither of the previous cases has been settled.
