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.
