Nokia and Qualcomm take their cross-licensing fee disagreements to court beginning Wednesday. This case involves patent-licensing fees that Nokia paid to Qualcomm between 1992 and 2007, totaling $1 billion. When the agreement expired in April 2007, Nokia stated that it considered itself "paid up" and shouldn't have to give Qualcomm any more money. Qualcomm disagreed. Nokia is contesting the amount of the fees to license certain wireless technologies. The two companies have multiple lawsuits against one another in various countries. Hundreds of millions of dollars in fees are at stake, and each company has a lot to lose, depending on the outcome of this case.

if the agreement was until 2007, and nokia paid everything that was due. so now that the agreement is up they don't owe anymore.

so qualcomm is wrong...
If what you say is true, then Nokia must stop using the Qualcomm technology because they no longer have a license.

There are two sides to the story, and it's not at all clear who is right.
