Apple files patent-infringement lawsuit against Nokia in UK

“Apple Inc. said it filed a patent- infringement lawsuit against Nokia Oyj in the U.K., part of a broader fight between the companies over smartphone technology,” Susan Decker and Diana Ben-Aaron report for Bloomberg

“A copy of the complaint, filed yesterday in the U.K. High Court of Justice Chancery Division, wasn’t immediately available,” Decker and Ben-Aaron report. “Kristin Huguet, an Apple spokeswoman, said the case is related to patent-infringement claims that Apple lodged against Nokia in December in the U.S.”

Decker and Ben-Aaron report, “In court filings in December and February, Apple claimed Nokia was seeking to force Apple into surrendering access to proprietary technology that differentiates the iPhone. Apple said it doesn’t want to license its iPhone-related patents to competitors. The new case is Apple Inc. v. Nokia Corp., HC10CO3053, High Court of Justice, Chancery Division (London).”
