U.K. judge rules against Nokia in patent infringement case
IPC acquired the patents in 2007 from Robert Bosch. The world's number one automotive supplier, Bosch could not work out a deal 4 years ago to license the technology to Nokia and sold the patent to IPCom. Judge Christopher Floyd sitting in the High Court of London also ruled that a third Nokia phone did not violate the patent. Nokia said it would appeal part of the judgment and the company claims that its current lineup does not violate the patents in question although IPCom says that the two phones that infringed upon the patents are still sold by Nokia.
In a strange twist of events, a couple of days ago Nokia settled a similar case with Apple. The Cupertino based firm will make a one time payment to Nokia and the latter will also receive royalty payments.
