Blackberry Drags Nokia to court over infringement.
Nokia and Blackberry, two of the biggest names in the mobile tech world have dragged one another to court over patent infringement which does more to remind us of the fierce tech battle between mobile tech companies especially the legendary rivalry between Samsung and Apple.
Blackberry according to reports filed a lawsuit against Nokia for infringing on its patent. Nokia in Delaware is for now on the hot seat as the Finnish company has been alleged to be-be using the Blackberry licensed software in the production of mobile products like the radio network controllers, Flexi Multiradio base stations, and the Liquid Radio software.
The lawsuit filed by Blackberry against Nokia Delaware specifically targets products and services offered by the Finnish company in collaboration with LTE networks including AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.
Blackberry who just made a recent entry into the Android world noted in its complaint that Nokia has continuously encouraged the use if the standard compliant products without due authorization from BlackBerry to do so.
Blackberry maintained that the Finnish company should be made to compensate it for the unauthorized use and access to its patented properties and technology. The suit filed, however, does not specify how much the tech company is looking to milk out of the suit.
Backing up its claims, Blackberry noted that some of the patents infringed upon by Nokia were from 2011 which it acquired a part of a business acquisition of Nortel’s patents which costs $4.5 billion after Nortel went bankrupt.
Recall that BlackBerry was one of the groups of companies that purchased the patents which was later divided among the group of companies.
