Looks like Nokia's pulling all the stops in its patent fight with Apple
: in addition to the already-filed lawsuit
, the Finnish company has now filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission
, alleging that "virtually all" of Apple's products infringe one of seven patents covering user interfaces, cameras, antennas, and power management. Ouch. Of course, this is a pretty standard tactic as far as major patent disputes go -- this is just a second front of the same war
, and we'd expect Apple to lodge an ITC complaint of its own in due time. What could make this interesting is the ITC's power to ban imports
of infringing products
in relatively short order, so we'll be keeping a close eye on this one.
