Nokia Files Against Apple -- Again!

6:55 AM -- Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) has filed further patent infringement proceedings against Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

The Finnish giant first filed against the iPhone maker for intellectual property theft in 2009, but those original submissions were rejected by the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) late last week, reports Reuters. (See Nokia Fires Volley at Apple's iPhone .)

Now Nokia says it has "filed a further complaint" with the ITC "alleging that Apple infringes additional Nokia patents in virtually all of its mobile phones, portable music players, tablets and computers."

Specifically, "the seven Nokia patents in the new complaint relate to Nokia's pioneering innovations that are now being used by Apple to create key features in its products in the areas of multi-tasking operating systems, data synchronization, positioning, call quality and the use of Bluetooth accessories."

This means Nokia now has action against Apple related to 46 patents. It's fair to assume the legal teams at both companies won't have much spare time on their hands in the coming decade.
