The boys are fighting again. Reuters is reporting that Apple has officially sued Nokia (again) in Britain over 9 patent infringements for implementations developed by Cupertino engineers the Finnish cellphone maker is purportedly using.
We are investigating the claims, which appear to be based on nine implementation patents already in suit between the two companies in the United States,” said Nokia spokesman Mark Durrant. The two firms have been locked in a legal tussle since last October, when Nokia sued Apple in the United States, arguing the iPhone-maker was getting a “free ride” on technologies patented by Nokia.
The Finnish company said Apple owed it royalties for using Nokia technology that allows such basic mobile tasks as sending email or downloading applications.
I don’t know how this will end (no one knows, really), but I heard winter strikes pretty hard in Britain. Perhaps Nokia could use some more pee in their pants.
