Nokia Sues Apple Over Technology Patents

May 11, 2010

A lawsuit from Finnish mobile phone giant Nokia alleges that Apple infringed on five of its patents in the production of the iPhone and iPad. This suit follows an October lawsuit in which Nokia accused Apple of infringing on 10 of its patents. Apple responded with allegations of antitrust violations and a December suit that asserted that Nokia had infringed on 13 Apple patents.

The patents in question deal with antenna positioning, voice and data transmission, and the use of positioning data in applications.
