After a judge recently threw out 5 Nokia patent complaints against Apple, Nokia has filed a second series of complaints with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) against Apple. This second complaint is alleging that Apple infringes Nokia patents in virtually all of its mobile phones, portable music players, tablets and computers.
Our latest ITC filing means we now have 46 Nokia patents in suit against Apple, many filed more than 10 years before Apple made its first iPhone," said Paul Melin, Vice President, Intellectual Property at Nokia. "Nokia is a leading innovator in technologies needed to build great mobile products and Apple must stop building its products using Nokia's proprietary innovation.
This new complaint refers to seven Nokia patents in the areas of multi-tasking operating systems, data synchronization, positioning, call quality and the use of Bluetooth accessories. This one looks set to drag on for quite some time, and in a great many countries!
