Move #1: Nokia files a suit against Apple with the US District Court for the District of Delaware, alleging the infringement of 10 patents it claims are essential to industry standards. In that case, Nokia would have made FRAND (fair, reasonable & non-discriminatory) licensing commitments concerning them.

Move #8: The ITC orders a partial consolidation of Apple's complaint against Nokia into the investigation of Apple's complaint against HTC, merging only the five patents Apple asserts in its ITC complaints against both Nokia and HTC.

On this page, the five patents consolidated into the 9 18Apple vs. HTC case have a green background, while the four patents remaining in the original case have a 9 blue background.

Move #15: In early November, media reports say that an ITC staff report dated 27 October didn't identify any infringement of valid patent claims by Nokia. That report related to only 4 of the 9 patents asserted by Apple against Nokia: those that were asserted only against Nokia but not against HTC ('431, '599, '726, '354). The Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) can still decide differently from the staff recommendation, which is just an opinion.

Apple makes counterclaims against plaintiff Nokia Corporation (of Espoo, Finland) as well as its subsidiary Nokia Inc. (a Delaware corporation headquartered in Texas). Allegedly infringing products For 8 patents, Apple's infringement allegations relate to "Nokia handsets using the [specified] platforms, including but not limited to [the specified phone/s]". For 2 patents, the sole specifically accused product is the N900. For another 2 patents, the allegations relate to devices "having [USB or GSM] functionality, including but not limited to [specified product/s]". 1 patent allegedly reads on the Carbide.c++ development tool, with Apple broadly accusing "Carbide.c++, applications developed using Carbide.c++, and phones having applications developed using Carbide.C++" without specifying particular products (potentially that would be a very long list). On the next page there is a matrix providing an overview of the different infringement allegations and accused technologies, operating system platforms, and specified devices.

Nokia Corporation (of Espoo, Finland) vs. Apple Inc. (of Cupertino, CA 95014) On 22 October 2009, Nokia had already filed a suit against the same defendant with the same court (case no. 1:09-cv-00791).

Partial consolidation On 26 Apr 2010, the ITC ordered the partial consolidation of this case into investigation no. 337-TA-710. As a result, Nokia Corp. (of Espoo, Finland) and Nokia Inc. (of White Plains, NY 10604) have to defend themselves alongside HTC against allegations of infringement of five patents (the '867, '131, '705, '263 and RE486 patents). An unopposed Apple motion for partial termination on 28 Oct 2010 (relating to four patents, three of which were subject to partial consolidation) reduced that subset of patents to two (the '705 and '263 patents).

Staff report In early November 2010, media reports claimed that the staff of the ITC (or more precisely, of its Office of Unfair Import Investigations) had stated in a memorandum dated 27 October 2010 that "the evidence will not establish a violation ... as to any of the asserted patents." However, the investigating staff is merely a party to the proceeding, and the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) assigned to the case is free to decide against the staff recommendation. That has, in fact, happened in a number of cases. Also, FOSS Patents pointed out that the staff report related only to the four patents remaining in investigation no. 337-TA-704, not to the five patents consolidated into investigation no. 337-TA-710.

Partial consolidation stated further below (added Nokia Corp. and Nokia Inc. as defendants). Allegedly infringing Nokia products On the previous page, a matrix shows the accused products for all patents originally asserted by Apple against Nokia in the ITC complaint that gave rise to ITC investigation no. 337-TA-704, including the five patents partially consolidated into this proceeding. Asserted patents (in order of appearance in documents filed with the ITC) asserted by Apple in original complaint -- patents asserted only against HTC but not Nokia are green in the list below: 5,481,721 ("721") Method for providing automatic and dynamic translation of object oriented programming language-based message passing into operating system message passing using proxy objects 5,519,867 ("867") Object-oriented multitasking system dropped as a result of Apple motion of 28 Oct 2010 6,275,983 ("983") Object-oriented operating system 5,566,337 ("337") Method and apparatus for distributing events in an operating system 5,929,852 ("852") Encapsulated network entity reference of a network component system dropped as a result of Apple motion of 28 Oct 2010 5,946,647 ("647") System and method for performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data 5,969,705 ("705") Message protocol for controlling a user interface from an inactive application program 6,343,263 ("263") Real-time signal processing system for serially transmitted data 5,915,131 ("131") Method and apparatus for handling I/O requests utilizing separate programming interfaces to access separate I/O service dropped as a result of Apple motion of 28 Oct 2010 RE39,486 ("RE486") Extensible, replaceable network component system dropped as a result of Apple motion of 28 Oct 2010 Partial consolidation On 26 Apr 2010, the ITC ordered the partial consolidation of case no. 337-TA-704 into this one. As a result, Nokia Corp. (of Espoo, Finland) and Nokia Inc. (of White Plains, NY 10604) have to defend themselves alongside HTC against allegations of infringement of five patents (the '867, '131, '705, '263 and RE486 patents). An unopposed Apple motion for partial termination on 28 Oct 2010 (relating to four patents, three of which were subject to partial consolidation) reduced that subset of patents to two (the '705 and '263 patents). Information concerning HTC's allegedly infringing products is provided in a document covering Apple's disputes with HTC (and Motorola).
