U.K. gives Nokia another win against Qualcomm

After losing a ruling from the ITC in the U.S. last week, Qualcomm has lost another bid to prove Nokia infringed on its patents in the U.K. The U.K. High Court ruled that Nokia had not infringed on two of Qualcomm's patents that relate to GSM technology standards. Qualcomm filed 11 lawsuits around the world against Nokia during the past two years, but has yet to win any legal action against the company, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

"We are pleased with the Court's decision that the patent claims are invalid and believe it is consistent with and supported by the facts," said Nokia CFO Rick Simonson. "This is the second court to conclude that Qualcomm does not have relevant and valid GSM patents."
