Nokia files second compaint against Apple with the ITC, accusing infringement on 7 patents
Nokia has filed a second complaint against Apple with the International Trade Commission (ITC). The filing mentions the Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod and the Cupertino based firm's Mac products. Nokia says that "key features" of those products infringe on 7 of the Finnish based firm's patents. The features related to the patent deal with multitasking, data syncing, call quality, positioning and Bluetooth technology. The exact 7 patents were not disclosed in the filing.

Paul Mellion, Nokia's VP of intellectual property, said, "Our latest ITC filing means we now have 46 Nokia patents in suit against Apple, many filed more than 10 years before Apple made its first iPhone. Nokia is a leading innovator in technologies needed to build great mobile products and Apple must stop building its products using Nokia's proprietary innovation."

The ITC recently ruled against Nokia in a previous filing made by the company against Apple. The former tech giant said it would wait to read all of the details of the ruling before deciding what its next step will be. Nokia also has patent infringement claims against Apple pending in the U.K., Netherlands and Germany and expects some of these claims to come to trial within the next few months.
