It expects it to be revoked before Nokia can appeal the decision.“While Nokia will doubtless try to downplay the significance of this victory, the ‘120 patent is Nokia’s flagship patent, and appears to be one of the reasons that Apple was forced to settle with Nokia after it was asserted against Apple in the same court,” the company stated.The same court dismissed another Nokia complaint regarding a patent for “Electronic Display Device and Lighting Control Method of Same”. HTC believes this patent is also invalid and will continue with invalidity actions in England and Germany. Author Alianza sobre IA entre Nokia y Microsoft Tim Ferguson last_img read more
