Nokia today announced that it has sued Apple for patent infringement in Germany and the United States. According to the trial, Cupertino agreed to license some of Nokia’s patents in 2011, but has been rejecting offers since then. “Through our investment in research and development, Nokia has created or contributed to many of the fundamental technologies used in today’s mobile devices, including Apple’s,” said Ikka Rahnasto, head of Nokia’s patent department.
The lawsuit has been filed in the Regional Courts of Dusseldorf, Mannheim and Munich in Germany and the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. A total of 32 patents are those that would be involved in the case and cover technologies of all kinds, from those related to screens and the user interface to the chipsets and video encoding.
Apple is certainly not new to this patent infringement. It has already paid $ 24.9 million for a Siri-related patent earlier this year and another $ 625 million for another lawsuit related to a patent used on Facetime. But he does not always lose. He once sued Samsung for patent infringement and won. What will happen this time?
SUMMARY LVL 5: Nokia sued Apple for infringing on at least 32 of its patents
