Oh dear, someone is upset with Apple. Nokia is suing Apple for infringing patents on mobile phone technology for the popular iPhone device. Basically, Nokia is saying that Apple had not signed an agreement to use their technology.
Nokia, the world's biggest mobile phone maker, has said that it is suing its US rival Apple for infringing patents on mobile phone technology for the iPhone.
Nokia said it had not been compensated for its technology, and accused Apple of "trying to get a free ride on the back of Nokia's innovation".
The 10 alleged patent infringements involve wireless data, speech coding, security and encryption.
Apple, which did not comment on the news, saw its shares dip slightly.
The breaches applied to all models of the iPhone since its launch in 2007, Nokia added.
I think, like big companies out there, they will settle with an agreement, with large sums of money being handed over before it ever goes to the court...
