Nokia files patent infringement lawsuit against Apple

Nokia made an announcement on Thursday, saying that it is back in mobile space and it is suing Apple Inc in the US and German courts for patent infringement, claiming that US tech giant steeled its technology, without paying for it.

The Finnish company, once the World’s largest mobile phone maker, said the two companies had signed a licensing agreement in 2011, and since then “Apple has declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many of Apple’s products.”

 

Nokia in its all lawsuits mentioned that Apple has infringed 32 of its patents, covering display, user interface, software, antenna, chipsets, and video coding technologies.

Nokia says that since agreeing to a license covering “some” of its patents in 2011, Apple “has declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many of Apple’s products” – and that’s the reason for these new lawsuits.
