Nokia has declared that the firm is going to defend its intellectual property. The Finnish firm has already launched the case of patent infringement against the top mobile manufacturers like HTC , RIM and Viewsonic.
Though, both in Germany and US suits have been filed. However, Finnish firm
has assured that litigation action will not be taken.
Chief legal officer, Louise Pentland, commented that Nokia
has all the technology that is needed for great mobile devices. More than
40 companies have been licensed essential for our standards. Well, Nokia
has said to avoid the litigation,but this case has been filed in order end
the unauthorized use of the innovations and technologies invented by us
which are still not widely licensed.
The suits have been filed in the Federal District Court of Delaware against
both HTC and Viewsonic.
In Germany, however the suits include state against HTC and RIM
particularly in the Regional Court of Dusseldorf. There were plenty of
allegations fired at all three major mobile firms in the Regional Courts in
Mannheim. It seems Nokia is not taking the suits lightly and total of 45
patent issues have been cited in all the cases.
Nokia has also mentioned the areas where infringement has occurred such as
hardware capabilities including power management,dual function antennas and
multi mode radios. On the software end, these include app stores, dynamic
menus, data encryption and retrieval of emails on a mobile.
Pentland has mentioned that most of these inventions are key to
. It is necessary of the companies to use their own innovations thereby
respecting our intellectual property. No toleration of the unauthorized use
will be done.
