BlackBerry Sues Nokia Over Patents

Posted by at 7:51 am on February 15, 2017

BlackBerry filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Nokia this week. BlackBerry claims Nokia is using its patented technology in select telecommunications equipment that Nokia sells to network operators, such as T-Mobile, without the proper licenses.

The 11 patents in question were originally held by Nortel Networks and, in a bankruptcy sale, later sold to Rockstar Consortium, a patent-holding collective including Blackberry, Apple, and Microsoft. Many of the patents are said to be standard essential.

BlackBerry isn’t looking to block Nokia’s use of the patents. Moreover, BlackBerry is obligated to license them at fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory terms.

“BlackBerry seeks to obtain recompense for Nokia’s unauthorized use of BlackBerry’s patented technology,” said the company in a statement.

Fro not the firm it didn’t specify what sort of recompense or damages it is seeking. BlackBerry filed the complaint in Delaware.
