  • Nokia And RIM Come To Deal On Patent Feud



    Last month a Swedish arbitrator ruled in favor of Nokia in a contract dispute over Nokia's WLAN patents and other related items. Now RIM has decided to put the quarrel to an end, agreeing that the deal will see it license Nokia patents, while both parties will withdraw "all existing patent litigation."

    Under the agreement, RIM will make a one time payment to Nokia, which will follow up with royalty payments.

    "We are very pleased to have resolved our patent licensing issues with RIM and reached this new agreement, while maintaining Nokia’s ability to protect our unique product differentiation," said Paul Melin, chief intellectual property officer at Nokia. "This agreement demonstrates Nokia’s industry leading patent portfolio and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities in the mobile communications market."

    TNW managed to get a hold of the list of patents, which include; 5,479,476 (user-adjustable modes for phones); 5,845,219, (call alert during silent mode); 6,049,796, (real-time search on a personal digital assistant); 6,055,439, (cellphone user interface); 6,253,075, (call rejection); and 6,427,078, (small, handheld workstation).

    Anyone looking at this logically should realize that RIM is looking to moving on with BlackBerry 10 next month and having a costly patent war with Nokia wouldn't be good any way one looks at it. Keep the focus on the prize.
