Nokia Sues Apple To Court Over 32 Patents

Ahead of Nokia's 2017 launch, they have filed a lawsuit against Apple.

Nokia claims Apple infringed on 32 of its patents, including display, user interface, software, antenna, chipsets, and video coding technologies.

The details are still not too clear as not much is said in the press release, so I don't know exactly how Apple is allegedly infringing these patents.

According to Nokia, since agreeing to a license covering "some" of its patents in 2011, Apple "has declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many of Apple's products" - and that's the reason for these new lawsuits.

Nokia's head of Patent Business, Ilkka Rahnasto, had this to say about the company's complaints:

Through our sustained investment in research and development, Nokia has created or contributed to many of the fundamental technologies used in today's mobile devices, including Apple products. After several years of negotiations trying to reach agreement to cover Apple's use of these patents, we are now taking action to defend our rights.

What a strategic way to come back into the smartphone game. Appearing in the news alongside Apple certainly won't hurt Nokia's efforts to be once again recognized as a  top player in the mobile world either. Expect Nokia to file further actions against Apple in other jurisdictions in the future.
