ZTE and Nokia cleared of infringing on InterDigital patents

ZTE and Nokia cleared of infringing on InterDigital patents
On Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in favor of Nokia and ZTE in a patent infringement suit brought against them by patent troll InterDigital. Five patents were involved in the suit, four of them designed to allow a handset to run using less power. The remaining patent lets a device transfer data over various networks. The appeals court decision upholds the original ruling by the ITC, which had also ruled against InterDigital.

The Court of Appeals also agreed with the ITC's ruling that the fifth patent was invalid because it was too obvious. Microsoft, which purchased Nokia Devices and Services last year, was happy with the ruling while InterDigital basically shrugged it off. The patent troll said that it was disappointed but had other litigation that it would be focusing on. Huawei was also part of the original litigation, but decided to settle with InterDigital last year.

InterDigital also has separate individual cases against ZTE and Microsoft regarding other patents. Taking place in Delaware District Court, ZTE lost its case in October while the trial involving Microsoft has yet to begin.

I just wonder why people not helping to sign the petition to make Symbian an open source? It just take a minute to sign in. Sure, it might not be benefit you for now (me neither as now i am not using Symbian anymore) but at least for those who using this (Dead) platform. It would be much appreciated if you would spend a minute to sign in. Here is the link, in case you want to sign in but don't know where you should go:https://www.change.org/p/bill-gates-release-symbian-source-code-make-it-open-source-release-latest-update-builds-save-the-environment

Symbian is owned by Accenture. Microsoft bought Nokia to supersede Symbian with Windows Phone not to rescue it.

I can understand it but i just hope this will convince Microsoft to re-consider. I think there are millions fans of Nokia and Symbian around the world but less than 2000 people have signed which is unbelievable.

Great! :) I also signed because i used to own many Symbian devices in the past. I just realized that Symbian is a good platform which does not really need a great spec to handle everything. Nokia 808 PV was my last Symbian phone. I loved it so much, especially the unbeatable camera but unfortunately, it was stolen after 6 months of use.

8220 people signed the petition, but Symbian OS not owned by Nokia or Microsoft!

LOL, it was my bad. It reaches 8225 now and it says 1,775 needed. I am not sure who owns the OS now. I was trying to find out on the internet but it seems most likely to be owned by Microsoft, i don't know.
