Two Groups of Nokia Patents Asserted in Suit Against Apple

  • September 15, 2014

Core Wireless SARL filed two new suits against Apple, the second and third suits filed by the Conversant subsidiary since it began litigating its patents in 2012. All three of Core Wireless’s cases name Apple as the sole defendant although each case asserts a different group of patents. Of the newly filed suits, one asserts a group of patents related to a communication connection over a radio network (5,946,634, 6,477,151, 6,633,536, 7,773,708, 7,782,818, RE44,828). In the complaint, Core Wireless states that the asserted patents were declared essential to mobile communication standards by previous owner, Nokia, and that Core Wireless previously approached Apple about a license. The other suit asserts patents related to various features of a mobile device, including the display, location-finding capabilities, and sending and receiving information (5,907,823, 7,072,667, 7,693,552, 8,434,020, 8,498,671, 8,713,476). Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices are accused of infringing the asserted patents in both suits. The patents-in-suit originated with Nokia, and have not been used in previous litigation. Core Wireless acquired the patents in late August 2011 from Nokia patent trust. The assignment also included a security agreement between Core Wireless and Nokia. 9/10, Eastern District of Texas, 6:14cv00751, 6:14cv00752
