Apple-Nokia patent battle put on hold

A federal judge in Delaware has agreed to put a patent fight between Apple and Nokia on hold pending resolution of their competing claims before the International Trade Commission.

"The Sacramento Bee" (http://www.sacbee.com/2010/03/03/2580570/del-judge-puts-nokia-apple-pate...) is reporting that judge signed an order Wednesday staying litigation in a lawsuit in which Nokia claims that Apple is infringing on seven Nokia patents in products ranging from the iPhone to computers. The order also covers counterclaims in which Apple alleges that Nokia has infringed on nine Apple patents that are the subject of an ITC complaint by Apple.

Last month it was announced that Apple's patent-infringement complaint seeking to block Nokia Oyj’s phone imports into the U.S. will be investigated by a U.S. trade agency. The U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington will consider the complaint filed last month and decide whether to ban the imports.

In January Nokia filed yet another patent lawsuit against Apple, alleging that the company violates 10 of its US patents related mostly to smartphone technology. Also in January, Nokia filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) alleging that Apple infringes Nokia patents in virtually all of its mobile phones, portable music players, and computers.

This followed -- now play close attention -- an Nokia complaint filed in October Nokia against Apple with the Federal District Court in Delaware, alleging that Apple's iPhone infringes Nokia patents for GSM, UMTS and wireless LAN (WLAN) standards. Basically, Nokia claims that Apple isn't paying licensing fees for the wireless technologies it uses in the iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

On Dec. 11, Apple filed a countersuit claiming that Nokia is infringing 13 Apple patents. “Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours,” said Bruce Sewell, Apple’s General Counsel and senior vice president.
