Legal action ends with new patent agreement between Nokia and RIM

Nokia has agreed a new patent licensing deal with Research In Motion, enabling RIM to use Nokia’s patented technology on its BlackBerry handsets. Full details are confidential although RIM will pay Nokia a one-off amount and ongoing charges.

The agreement ends all current patent-related legal action between the two companies and removes the potential of new cases in the UK, USA and Canada following a tribunal ruling last month.

Paul Melin, chief intellectual property officer at Nokia, said “We are very pleased to have resolved our patent licensing issues with RIM and reached this new agreement, while maintaining Nokia’s ability to protect our unique product differentiation. This agreement demonstrates Nokia’s industry leading patent portfolio and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities in the mobile communications market.”
