BlackBerry sues Nokia for patent infringement
According to BlackBerry, Nokia products like the Flexi Multiradio base stations, radio network controllers, and Liquid Radio software are using unlicensed patents that belong to BlackBerry. The latter was part of a group that ended up with the patents when it bought Nortel's IP in 2011 for $4.5 billion dollars. Nokia had tried to purchase this intellectual property back in 2009, but Nortel's bankruptcy proceedings got in the way.
Will BlackBerry and Nokia end up getting this worked out in court? Stay tuned to find out!
