Apple Vs. Nokia: The Battle of Britain II

Another blow landed in the Apple-Nokia patent punch-up. Apple on Tuesday sued Nokia in the High Court in London seeking to invalidate one of the patents at issue between the companies. This particular one covers touchscreen scrolling and is one of a number of patents Nokia has accused Apple of infringing.

Nokia, for its part, doesn’t seem much worried by the action. “[We’re] confident that all of the 37 patents [we have] asserted against Apple [are valid],” a spokesperson told Bloomberg. “We are examining the filing and will take whatever actions are needed to protect our rights.”

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
