Detailed analysis of Nokia – Apple patent lawsuit
As I said last week, Nokia sued Apple and did so for technology they developed and Apple has not paid to use, like just about everyone else. I saw many people posting that it was Nokia just trying to get a piece of the iPhone pie since they have not been successful in the US market and these statements were simply not true. Engadget actually had some lawyers look into this issue more closely and it looks like Apple owes Nokia some cash and should think about paying before they end up having to pay for all of the Nokia legal fees on top of payments due for using the patented technology.
It never has been about iPhone sales or who is the leading maker of smartphones, but rather Nokia’s right to reimbursement for the millions of dollars they spent developing the technology that others now use.
