The Swedish company states it has continued to offer talks with Apple, but a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) agreement failed to materialize. Said lawsuits have been filed in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. It's claimed the iPhone, iPad and other hardware produced by Apple are infringing on Ericsson licensing that covers 2G and 4G technologies.
From Ericsson's press release:
"Apple continues to profit from Ericsson's technology without having a valid license in place. Our technology is used in many features and functionality of today's communication devices. We are confident the courts in Germany, the UK and the Netherlands will be able to help us resolve this matter in a fair manner."
It's not the first time Ericsson has attempted to escalate matters against Apple with the company previously attempting to have iPhone sales banned in the US. The ITC agreed to look into the dispute between the two parties back in March. Ericsson is looking to take as much as $750 million from Apple a year for patent licensing.
