Apple-Nokia Feud Escalates
Jan 16, 2010, 1:19 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The patent spat between Apple and Nokia took another turn yesterday when Apple filed a petition with the International Trade Commission seeking to ban Nokia from importing its devices into the U.S. Nokia filed a similar petition in hopes to block Apple from importing its devices into the European Union. Both companies allege that the other is violating a number of patents regarding cell phone technology. When reached for comment, Nokia spokesperson Mark Durrant told Bloomberg, "Nokia will study the complaint when it is received and continue to defend itself vigorously. However this does not alter the fact that Apple has failed to agree appropriate terms for using Nokia technology and has been seeking a free ride on Nokia’s innovation since it shipped the first iPhone in 2007."
