Nokia: Market changes forcing hand on legal issues

Nokia contends its recent lawsuits targeting Apple, LG and Samsung and others reflect the changing, increasingly competitive nature of the wireless industry.

"The litigation is not the driver," Louise Pentland, Nokia's chief legal officer, told the New York Times. "It is the business environment that has changed." Article
