Nokia sues Apple again

Nokia Oyj, the largest mobile phone manufacturer, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple, Inc. The suit was filed in that hot spot of legal activity, Madison, Wisconsin (actually, the Madison court has a record of fast patent trials).

The suit references patents that relate to enhanced speech and data transmission. These are different patents than the ones Nokia filed a lawsuit about in December 2009.

That lawsuit, taking place in Delaware, targets patents on “device construction methods, camera sensor optimization and touch-sensitive screens.”

Apple believes Nokia is digging for a piece of the pie. Obviously, the iPhone is wildly popular. This is the fourth complaint Nokia has filed against Apple, and the complaints haven’t been limited to the iPhone. Nokia claims the technology appears in Macbooks, as well as Apple’s mobile devices.

Apple is currently cooperating with investigations.
