Nokia Vs Blackberry, Seeks to Block Sales in US

Nokia is filing a claim against Blackberry over a patent infringement to halt sales in the US. Nokia has asked a San Jose court yesterday to block the sale of Blackberry devices in the United States over what it calls a patent infringement. The patent, which Nokia claims was originally licensed to Blackberry in 2003, does not include the WLAN patents that are being infringed upon.

“[RIM] is not entitled to manufacture or sell products compatible with the WLAN standard without first agreeing with Nokia on the royalty to be paid for its manufacture and/or sale of subscriber terminals compatible with such standards.”

The patents in question are U.S. patents:

  •  5,479,476 – user-adjustable modes for phones
  •  5,845,219, – call alert during silent mode
  •  6,049,796 –  real-time search on a personal digital assistant
  • 6,055,439 – cellphone user interface
  • 6,253,075 – call rejection
  • 6,427,078 – small, handheld workstation.
