United States International Trade Commission orders stay of Qualcomm's suit against Nokia


Posted: 27 Feb 2007
TAGS: nokia
Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced today that the Administrative Law Judge overseeing the investigation initiated by Qualcomm against Nokia in the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has ordered a stay of the proceedings until further notice. The trial had been scheduled to begin on March 5, 2007.
On June 9, 2006 Qualcomm filed a complaint with the ITC requesting an investigation into the alleged infringement by Nokia's GSM products of six Qualcomm patents. The ITC subsequently initiated an investigation on July 10, 2006.
Nokia is confident that it has not infringed any Qualcomm patents that are at issue in this investigation. Additionally, since Qualcomm filed its complaint, it has voluntarily withdrawn three of the six patents from the suit. The remaining three are all from the same patent family. Nokia believes the patent withdrawal reflects on the weakness of Qualcomm's case.
If the case is not dismissed before the stay is lifted Nokia welcomes the opportunity to prove that the claims regarding the three remaining patents have no more merit than those Qualcomm has already voluntarily withdrawn.
Nokia is a leading innovator in the wireless space and has built one of the strongest and broadest intellectual property portfolios in the industry, with over 11,000 patent families. Since the early 1990's Nokia has invested approximately €30 billion in research and development.
