Nokia To Apple: Almost Everything You Makes Has One Of Our Patents In It

This whole patent lawsuit thing is getting ugly. Nokia has decided that almost everything that is blessed by Steve Jobs made by Apple has violated one of their patents. As a result, they’ve filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission:

“Nokia has been the leading developer of many key technologies in small electronic devices” said Paul Melin, General Manager, Patent Licensing at Nokia. “This action is about protecting the results of such pioneering development.  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.”

Oh boy. That’s a serious charge. Apple hasn’t responded to this as of yet. But you can fully expect that when they do, it will be a vigorous response. Just like when Apple countersued Nokia earlier this month.
