Nokia Fires Back at Apple in Patent Dispute

They’re at it again. When Nokia filed a patent claim against Apple, the computer maker was quick to file a complaint of its own. Now, as EnterpriseMobileToday reports, Nokia is ratcheting up its complaint.

Nokia and Apple lawsuit

Nokia on Tuesday announced it has filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (USITC), claiming that virtually all of Apple’s products infringe upon its patents — widening earlier claims that singled out the iPhone.

The USITC is an independent, non-partisan, quasi-judicial federal agency of the United States that provides trade expertise to both the legislative and executive branches and can take actions against certain unfair trade practices, including patent and copyright infringement.

In total, Nokia accuses Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) of violating seven distinct patents in areas such as user interface, as well as camera, antenna and power management technologies. It said Apple violates these patents in the iPhone and iPod and its MacBook computers.

Nokia claims these technologies cover the user experiences, lower manufacturing costs, and make for smaller devices with longer battery life.
