Nokia Beseeches ITC to Ban Apple Products from Europe

Nokia has stepped up its legal fight against Apple. In addition to the original complaint it filed in October 2009, Nokia has now filed additional legal action with the International Trade Commission. The first lawsuit claimed that Apple's iPhone violates 10 of Nokia's GSM, UMTS and Wi-Fi patents. Apple retaliated with its own lawsuit in December 2009, making similar patent claims against Nokia. Nokia's new complaint expands on the original and names more Apple products that violate its patents. Nokia claims that "most Apple products" violate its patents. Nokia is asking the ITC to ban Apple from importing its iPhone, iPod and MacBook to Europe.

They are still #2 in sales world wide so you are grossly uninformed. Nokia phones sold in Europe are very advanced but they don't make cdma phones, the dominant system in the US so their sales are limited here..

Go Nokia!

I hope they can pull this off, just because it would be so funny.. Drooling
What would be funny about singlehandedly destroying an American company? The US government should make a motion that forces apple to pay royalties (if found guilty) but we should stand behind all the jobs and fellow Americans before falling to simple ...

Will never happen

Neva eva, neva eva, neva eva...
Considering that Europe follows the model of "What is good for Nokia, is good for Europe", I wouldn't make any assumptions.

Apple & Microsoft have no friends whatsoever across the pond.

Trade retaliations don't work that way, usually it would hit an industry which ...
