BlackBerry takes aim at Nokia and sues for patent infringement

| February 15, 2017 | 8 Replies

Bloomberg reports that BlackBerry has filed a lawsuit against Nokia for infringing their patents. They are said to be demanding royalties for Nokia’s “mobile network products that use an industrywide technology standard.”


BlackBerry says that Nokia are aware of these patents, some of which Nokia tried and failed to buy through missed acquisition of Nortel.  That was bought by a consortium consisting of Blackberry, Apple and Microsoft.

    why now? they should have to have those patents for years…
    try to get some light?

    Indeed, why now? Or is Blackberry perhaps desperate for cash?

      but such lawsuits takes ages to settle…

      on the other hand bullying with Nokia on IPRs is historically not that fruitfull idea. maybe Motorola back in ’90s was the last successful trial?

      not to mention, Nokia IPR portfolio is stronger since then – especially after several merges with other telco giants…

    May be BB forgot nokia has a cross licending deal with Microsoft that covers such patents too.
