Nokia is claiming that the $1 billion it has paid to Qualcomm over the course of the last 15 years to use certain wireless patents means it should be fully paid up. Nokia insists that it be allowed to use the patents royalty-free moving forward. Qualcomm disagrees. The two companies struck cross-licensing agreements regarding these patents in 1992 and again in 2001. The second agreement expired in April 2007. Nokia and Qualcomm have not been able to resolve how to move forward and have legal fights pending in multiple jurisdictions.

I don't get Nokia's argument?

$1 Billion sounds like a nice round number, so lets just stop paying? If they're still using patented implementations in their products, why shouldn't they be forced to pay up/or banned from shipping infringing products?
doesnt stop chinese companies from making products i dont understand why nokia doesnt make its headquarters in china where patents dont matter... you know how they say it over there.

Confucius say "ching chong patent gone"
