Nokia Thinks Device Bans Are a Good Idea

Nokia has filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals overseeing one of the Apple v. Samsung patent cases. In particular, Nokia condemns a decision made in December by District Court Judge Lucy Koh that denied Apple's request to ban certain infringing products from being sold in the U.S. Apple appealed that decision, and Nokia's brief appears to support Apple's appeal. Nokia holds the position that product bans should be allowed in certain circumstances because they help "encourage innovation." Nokia has nothing to gain or lose directly in the Apple v. Samsung patent case, but believes the outcome will play a role in shaping other patent cases pending in the U.S. Last week, Judge Koh sliced the damages awarded to Apple from $1.05 billion to about $600 million, and mandated a new trial to more properly assess the damages. The new trial has yet to be scheduled.
