Nokia responds to last week's stay of injunction against the HTC One mini in the U.K.

Nokia responds to last week's stay of injunction against the HTC One mini in the U.K.
Last week, we told you that HTC had received a stay of injunction in a U.K. Appeals Court, reversing a sales ban on the HTC One mini in the country. The HTC One mini and the HTC One had both been found to have infringed on a patent that belonged to Nokia and was used in a component employed by the Taiwan manufacturer in both phones.

In a statement, Nokia said that the same patent will be featured in upcoming patent trials against HTC in Dusseldorf, Germany next month and will also be the subject of trials in Paris, France and Rome, Italy. And Nokia is on its second go around with the same patent at the ITC in the U.S. Meanwhile, on Friday an important ruling in a Nokia v. HTC patent trial in Munich I Regional Court should be announced. Not that the comment will have much influence in court, European Commission Vice President JoaquĆ­n Almunia has accused Nokia of patent trolling after selling the Devices and Services division to Microsoft.

Like the Samsung and Apple patent suits in the U.S. and all of the retrials and appeals that are keeping lawyers well fed, the Nokia and HTC battle seems destined to populate a number of courts in Europe, spreading from country to country. Eventually, either Nokia or HTC will have no more appeals left. By then, HTC will have been done with the HTC One and the HTC One mini and you can be pretty sure that the infringing component isn't anywhere near the HTC One 2.

If you can't understand that Nokia is patent trolling AND has been warned by the EU to not do so, you are either completely lost or intentionally willing to misrepresent false statements as truth. Seehttp://beta.slashdot.org/story/195373

Nokia really are the biggest trolls, buthurt over the Windows Phone 8x. That almost upstaged the 920.

I've used both the 920 and the 8x, the latter can't touch the Lumia. Trust me.

Huh? Biggest mistake here is relying on fosspatents, a site paid for by nokia/microsoft who obviously is not going to post favorably about android. Then again, phandroid doesn't fact check and neither does it's authors, clearly.
