Qualcomm today announced it has filed another complaint with the US International Trade Commission that Nokia is violating a number of its CDMA patents by selling GPRS/EDGE enabled handsets. Qualcomm filed a similar complaint last November, alleging nokia was violating 11 of its patents, in this complaint the number has been reduced to 6. Nokia and Qualcomm are currently renegotiating the terms of a cross-licensing agreements for GSM technology that expire next year. Nokia has not yet agreed to Qualcomm's proposal and Qualcomm has noted some concern for this in its financial filings. Nokia believes that Qualcomm is demanding an unfair sum for its technology, especially W-CDMA, and has filed a complaint with the European Commission about unfair licensing fees. The leap to 4G technologies will not end this squabble, as Qualcomm also owns patents on OFDM, the technology on which all likely 4G candidates are based.
