Nokia asks International Trade Commission to investigate patent claims

Nokia has followed up its recent legal action against Apple by filing a complaint with the USA's International Trade Commission. Nokia alleges that Apple infringes seven Nokia patents in almost all of its mobile phones, portable music players and computers. It says these patented technologies allow better user experience, lower manufacturing costs, smaller size and longer battery life for Nokia products.

Paul Melin, General Manager of Patent Licensing at Nokia, said "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 statement]
