Nokia and Interdigital continue patent battle
The legal battle between Nokia and InterDigital continues after the mobile phone manufacturer decided to appeal the federal court ruling, issued back in December of 2005. The legal dispute between the two companies, which signed patent licensing agreement in March 2003, is over royalties that Nokia allegedly owes InterDigital for using its technology on 2G and 2.5G handsets. According to the ruling, Nokia has to pay between $232 million and $252 million, the company, however, finds this amount of money unreasonable, hence the decision to appeal. InterDigital, on the other hand, is determined to oppose all Nokia's legal actions and pursue the due payment.
