IPCom, a patent-holding company based in Germany, today accused Apple of violating one of its patents.

IPCom filed its claim in Germany and is seeking $2 billion from Apple to use the patent. According to the Wall Street Journal, the patent is a "mandatory element of the UMTS and LTE cellphone standards." Patents deemed standard essential must be licensed at fair and reasonable rates.
