  • Nokia: Everything Apple Makes Infringes Our Patents


    Nokia, the world's biggest mobile phone maker, said on Tuesday it had filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission alleging that Apple has infringed Nokia patents in "virtually all of its mobile phones, portable music players, and computers." Nokia had sued Apple in October, and earlier this month Apple countersued.

    In its complaint before the ITC, Nokia claims that Apple has illegally taken advantage of technology that the Finnish phone manufacturer developed. The allegation is that Apple infringed seven separate Nokia patents in implementing iPhone, iPod and Mac camera, antenna and power management functionality, as well as elements of the user interface. "These patented technologies are important to Nokia's success as they allow better user experience, lower manufacturing costs, smaller size and longer battery life for Nokia products," the company said in a statement.

    Paul Melin, Nokia's general manager of patent licensing, drew a distinction between this action and Nokia's earlier lawsuit, filed at the US District Court in Delaware.

    While our litigation in Delaware is about Apple's attempt to free-ride on the back of Nokia investment in wireless standards, the ITC case filed today is about Apple's practice of building its business on Nokia's proprietary innovation. [...] Nokia has been the leading developer of many key technologies in small electronic devices. This action is about protecting the results of such pioneering development.
    The Delaware lawsuit accused Apple of infringing 10 patents covering wireless data transfer, speech coding, security and encryption, and said their patents had been "infringed by all Apple iPhone models shipped since the iPhone was introduced in 2007." Apple struck back in December, suing Nokia for infringing on Apple's patents. The California computer maker sought to have Nokia's lawsuit dismissed, saying argued that it was not infringing on Nokia's patents... and that even if a court found them guilty of infringing,anyway Nokia had not offered fair licensing terms.

    Industry experts note that this legal back-and-forth in a fairly common tactic when licensing negotiations have broken down, and believe that Nokia is playing hardball to get royalty payments from Apple in the $6 to $12 US range for each iPhone sold.

      There you go being a retard.

      Where are you from? A place that will probably be under Sharia law in 30 years. You're a sensitive little b*itch who whines, wails, and complains when people use WORDS you don't like.

      You're on an internet forum, people use the word retard every 3 seconds, and if you're not aware of that by now you're just an idiot.

      LOL... i love the apple fanboys... Nokia practically invented the mobile phone market for you kids too young to remember... you could buy an ugly motorola brick.. or a stylish small Nokia.. and it was that way....well...until the iphone came out...

      Nokia has been making mobile devices since the 60's.. They pioneered EVERYTHING! And then Apple just jumps into the market claiming they owe Nokia nothing and they came up with it all by themselves.. HA!

      Apple is the new Microsoft kids.. If you think any different, you're fooling yourself..

      I had been a proud nokia user for many years.... They had/have the most powerful phones in the industry and in some aspects still doo but alot of there phones show up to america late and dont get picked up by carriers to subidize the prices.. i only hoped on the iphone game bacause it had a bigger screen and touch screen(plus i broke my nokia screen and was waiting for a replacement and picked up a iphone from a friend for 80 bucks until my phone got fixed)... but when i orginally had my last nokia n95... it had every option and more than the orginal iphone which was released the same time... but it actually had 3g, gps, 5mp cam, free teathering, mms, 3rd party apps, mp3 player with stereo sounds. YOU COULD EVEN LISTEN TO MUSIC OFF a simple everyday one ear bluetooth.(unlike 3.0os finally allowing some stereo bluetooth headphone to finally work) and more i could go on and on... it was a WAY better phone than the iphone at the time and still to this day makes way more powerful phones but i was gettign sick of paying big prices for there phones that i had to wait until they made a north american version to use with 3g.... MY point is nokia by far makes superiour products and deserves any royalites that they claim are being cheated out of.... the only iphone half way decent is the 3gs and it still sucks if u cant jailbreak it... i hate the lousey speakers ear and speakerphone, apple decided what i can and cant use my phone for and on and on.. the day i cant jailbreak a 3gs ill throw it in the trash and go back to nokias or maybe try a android based phone when they platform matures a bit further

      I can still critizise all i want about apple and still use there products and say how much superior nokia is an was when iphone first came out... your just mad the the truth hurts... apple is infringing on a bunch of nokias copyrights which every other phone company in the business excepts the fact that they owe nokia for use of thier ideas and products(and actually pay nokia to use their technology) and apple shouldnt get a free ride and act like they can do what they want...
