Nokia Sued Again

A company in New Zealand is suing Nokia over messaging technologies within its phones, claiming the Finnish phone giant is using its technology surrounding data packaging.
Michael S. Sutton Ltd. filed the complaint against Nokia in Texas, accusing the company of infringing on technology that prepares message packets for data transmission. The company claims that its technology is used in numerous messaging applications on Nokia phones, including SMS, MMS and WAP.

A Nokia spokesperson said they will "actively defend the rights of Nokia".

The suits had already been filed against Nokia, but was just as quickly pulled by Michael S Sutton for reasons unknown.

"This case was previously filed against Nokia and then voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff. We will analyze the details of the new case which was filed on 30 April, 2007 and actively defend the rights of Nokia," a spokeswoman said.

Nokia’s legal team have been kept quite busy of late. Last month, Qualcomm filed two lawsuits against Nokia, alleging that the Nokia had infringed on five Qualcomm mobile-phone patents. The two companies are also involved in a dispute over a cross-licensing agreement.
