Nokia and IPCom trade blows over N96 patent infringement suit

In patent rulings, it's generally pretty clear which side is the winner and which the loser, but both Nokia and German company IPCom seem to think they've come out on top in a recent UK IP case covering 3G technologies. Judge Christopher Floyd found in favor of IPCom's allegations, this week, that two Nokia devices infringed on UMTS patents bought by the company from Bosch in 2007; however, he also dismissed claims that a further twelve device variants fell foul of the same patents.

Nokia may have been having a rough week last week, but a little patent good news today has put a smile on the Finns' faces. Having been found guilty of infringing a patent owned by IPCom with its N96 smartphone last year, the European Patent Office has now overturned the patent and deemed it invalid.
