Apple fires back, files complaint with ITC against Nokia Apple has fired back at Nokia this weekend, filing a complaint with the International Trade Commission (ITC) over patent violations.
"Nokia will study the complaint when it is received and continue to defend itself vigorously," said the company. "However, this does not alter the fact that Apple has failed to agree appropriate terms for using Nokia technology and has been seeking a free ride on Nokia's innovation since it shipped the first iPhone in 2007."

Apple entered the smartphone market in 2007 and has quickly become the most profitable phone maker in the world. On the other hand, Nokia continues to lose market share in the smartphone market despite keeping its title as the most prolific manufacturer worldwide.

Maybe if they used a Nokia tax, over-hyped themselves and use white plastic, Nokia would be in the same position as Apple.

LOL these two companies sound like two 3rd grade kids on the playground...
"He stole my lunch money!"
"Yeah well he poured water on my homework!"
"You're stupid!"
"I'm rubber you're glue..." and so forth. Geez, grow up and get on with life.
