Apple ask ITC to ban Nokia from selling phones in the US

Continuing the ping pong legal battle between Apple and Nokia over patents and IP, Apple have filed with the International Trade Commission asking for a US import ban on Nokia products... mirroring the complaint Nokia made to ITC about Apple. While escalating quickly, this progression of claim and counter-claim is to be expected as both companies legal departments engage in brinkmanship before negotiation.

Read on in the full article.

Talking Go nokia go Apple

I hope they'll both go all the way, that way a lot of ridiculous patent claims will be thrown out from either party.

The bottom line is that apple is using some critical nokia patents that are crucial and fundamental for cell phone technology. Nokia at most is using something as minor as kinetic scrolling or similar. Small potatos if you ask me.

Smile Up To Date ?

It looks like these Apples live in the far past . Never heard of World Trade Negotiations ? Do they like to start a 17th century Trade War ?
Nokia could go ahead and have the Apples banned from the rest of the world (including the European Market) . They are too sour !

Both Nokia and Apple throwing their toys out of their strollers!

Saying that, Apple have had somewhat of a history of not paying royalties. They've ( Apple ) just been hit by a complaint from Kodak.

Thumbs up

The ball is now on Nokia's court. Let see what will Nokia do? This game is getting very exciting

I am wondering why Nokia did not sue RIM as well. RIM is actually more successful than Apple.

I'd go for 'something else':

More delays and a continued lack of general strategy from Nokia as their management are distracted by legal shenanigans.

probs because RIM payed up or did some patent swapping. Apple being Apple wouldn't wanna pay up and the only patent that Apple have that would be valuable to Nokia that i can see is the Mutli-touch/interface one/s, which would make the iPhone seam ridiculous

Nokia: Connecting Apple?

I agree to the fact that telephony issues that is rumored to be used by Apple by some means was a heavier copyright conflict. For some, it might look like that it is Nokia who copied more. It was the interface navigations, they say. It is the user interface.. And for majority of people, user interface is more likely to be noticed to be copied than inner telephony technologies because from the word intself "user interface", it is the just a physical attribute easily noticed by, er, user. Unless otherwise understood by blessed intelligent and techie people (including Nokia fanboys), it is indeed Apple who must plead, "Please Forgive Me."

However, America is not a big contributor to Nokia sales, I believe. The competition is getting tastier. And the connection of Nokia to Apple is still like what is between the same poles of two magnet. But, the bottomline is that, we, consumers will benefit as both of them struggle hard enough to make us satisfied.

To determine what a user finds most likely to be noticed in 'mobile phone', I suggest we give both manufacturers their way. Nokia can no longer have kinetic scrolling, and Apple can no longer have cellular network connections. Which phone do you think most people would use?
