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

Published by Ewan Spence at 21:06 UTC, January 16th 2010

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.

"Nokia will study the complaint when it is received and continue to defend itself vigorously," the Finnish company informed Reuters, "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."
