Apple fires another legal volley at Nokia

There’s been some more action in the long running legal battle between Apple and Nokia that none of us are completely sick of by now.

With Nokia moving outside the US to file a suit (alleging thirteen patent infringements by the iPhone and iPad) in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands last month, Apple has fired back.

Apple has filed a suit in the UK which claims that one of the patents Nokia brought against the company in Germany is “invalid”, a report on Bloomberg (via ZDNet UK) states. The specific patent is one related to touchscreen scrolling.

A Nokia spokesperson was quoted by Bloomberg as stating: “Nokia is confident that all of the 37 patents it has asserted against Apple are valid. They are examining the filing and will take whatever actions are needed to protect their rights.”

This all started when Nokia filed suits against Apple in October 2009, alleging ten patent violations by the iPhone. As to when it’s going to stop, it doesn’t look any time soon. Of course, there are unlikely to be any winners in the episode, apart from the lawyers, that is.
