British court dismisses Nokia patent appeal Nokia doesn't expect dismissal to affect sales in Britain.
In June 2011, a High Court ruling in the UK found that Nokia was infringing a patent held by German firm IPCom. The Finnish mobile giant moved to appeal the ruling, but has had its appeal rejected, paving the way for IPCom to take further action in a case stemming back five years.

The High Court had found the IPCom 100A patent to be valid, providing the German firm a major boost in its dispute with Nokia. IPCom can now seek an injunction on sales of Nokia phones throughout the UK.

Nokia has complained that IPCom's licensing fee demands are unjustifiable and excessive. Despite the decision by the British court to reject its appeal, Nokia said the dismissal would not affect sales of its handsets in Britain.

LOL...it won't hurt sales because you can't have a negative number of sales.
