Nokia Seeks Dismissal of Apple Lawsuit
- 1 Comment
On Friday, Nokia asked for dismissal of a lawsuit Apple filed against it, alleging anti-trust claims. Nokia claims that Apple is trying to deflect attention from the fact that it has stolen Nokia’s intellectual property.
The whole business was started back in October 2009 by Nokia when it filed a patent violation suit against Apple. Apple then countered with a lawsuit of its own, alleging withholding of patent information and demanding unreasonable royalties. Both companies have asked the US International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban imports of the other company’s phones.
The ITC plans to hear Apple’s case against Nokia in October of this year and plans a final decision by June 2011. It has not yet set a date for hearing Nokia’s case against Apple.
