Apple Hits back at Nokia

Apple vs Nokia

The Apple vs Nokia Patent spat just got uglier with Apple filing a new petition with the US International Trade Commission seeking a ban on the import of Nokia devices to the US.

This move comes in a few weeks after Nokia fled a similar petition agaist Apple and also asking for a similar ban on Apple’s products in the European Union. With the latest petition from Apple, the feud between these two major phone companies seem to have reached an unforeseen level.
Both Nokia and Apple allege a lot of patentĀ infringementsĀ on each other and allege both have copied stuff without acknowledging or paying royalties.

Nokia spokesperson Mark Durrant told Bloomberg, “Nokia will study the complaint when it is received and continue to defend itself vigorously. However this does not alter the fact that Apple has failed to agree appropriate terms for using Nokia technology and has been seeking a free ride on Nokia’s innovation since it shipped the first iPhone in 2007.”

It woud be interesting to see who wins this Clash of Titans and who will eventually have the last laugh.
