Nokia sues RIM plans to block BlackBerry sales
The Finnish company said in a statement that he sought the counsel of a court in Stockholm, hoping the result stop selling RIM teams that have WiFi connectivity, until the Canadian company reached an agreement with Nokia to use this technology .
Although RIM says it already has an agreement with Nokia covering the use of WiFi technology, Nokia says that the Swedish court found that RIM is violating the contract, and that it does not cover the WiFi.
The Finnish company hopes that, through lawsuits in the U.S., UK and Canada, the Stockholm arbitration court is recognized and stop selling devices with WiFi.
The lawsuit adds to the collection of disputes in the world of mobile phones, many of which relate to patents for technologies considered standard (such as WiFi). The companies that own these technologies are required to license them to anyone requesting them at a “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms under”, but that has not stopped there demands as to what price is considered a “fair and reasonable. “
