Nokia filed new round of patent suits against Apple
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On March 29, 2011, the Finnish telecommunications company Nokia announced that it had filed additional complaints against Apple with the US International Trade Commission (ITC). This new complaint alleged that Apple violated seven patents regarding various technological devices and their operating systems. The ITC had previously determined that Apple did not violate any of the patents that Nokia alleged in their first complaint against Apple in October 2009. In December 2010, the Nokia litigation against Apple spread to Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. However, Apple counter-sued in December 2010, claiming that Nokia had infringed on thirteen patents.
