Qualcomm Files Complaint Against Nokia with ITC
Posted: 12-Jun-2006 [Source: Qualcomm]

[Following on its lawsuit filed against Nokia in federal court in November of last year, Qualcomm on Friday filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) claiming unfair trade practices by Nokia violating at least six Qualcomm patents.]

San Diego -- QUALCOMM Incorporated announced that on Friday, June 9, 2006, it filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) alleging that Nokia Corporation and Nokia Inc. have engaged in unfair trade practices by the importation and sale of certain mobile telephone handsets, wireless communication devices and components that infringe one or more claims of six QUALCOMM patents. QUALCOMM has requested that the ITC institute an investigation into Nokia's infringing imports and ultimately issue an Exclusion Order to bar importation of those Nokia handsets and other products. QUALCOMM also seeks a Cease and Desist Order to bar further sales of infringing Nokia products that have already been imported and to halt the marketing, advertising, demonstration, warehousing of inventory for distribution and use of such imported products in the United States. The accused products include handsets for use in GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks.

QUALCOMM expects that the ITC investigation will commence in July and that the case will be tried in the first half of next year.

On November 4, 2005, QUALCOMM filed suit against Nokia Corporation and Nokia Inc. in federal court in San Diego for infringement of 11 of QUALCOMM's patents and one patent owned by SnapTrack. QUALCOMM's lawsuit alleges infringement of patents that are essential for the manufacture or use of equipment that complies with the GSM, GPRS and EDGE cellular standards (the GSM family of standards). Three of the patents included in QUALCOMM's ITC complaint are also being asserted in the San Diego litigation.

QUALCOMM has also sued Nokia for patent infringement in the United Kingdom. That lawsuit, commenced on May 24, 2006, alleges that Nokia's sales of products which are capable of operating in accordance with the GPRS and/or EDGE standards infringe two of QUALCOMM's patents in the U.K.

QUALCOMM has offered to license its essential patents for Nokia's GSM/GPRS/EDGE products under terms that are fair, reasonable and free from unfair discrimination. Nokia has refused this offer and continued to sell infringing products around the world, leaving QUALCOMM no choice but to enforce its patent rights through legal proceedings.
