U.S. ITC to investigate Nokia’s patent case against Apple

The United States International Trade Commission said Thursday that it will re-investigate patent infringement claims that Nokia filed against Apple in May 2010. In March, an ITC panel ruled that Apple did not infringe on Nokia’s patents related to speech and data transmission, device positioning, and antenna configurations, and this time around it will only examine two of the five patents named in the original case. That’s just a fraction of the patent suits Nokia has filed against the Cupertino-based company, though. Paul Melin, Nokia’s vice president of intellectual property, said Nokia now has 46 patent suits open against Apple as of March, when Nokia claimed the iPhone maker was infringing on seven additional patents.
