In an email statement, Nokia said it was trying to enforce the ruling ban, which covers PCs, laptops and tablets. Lenovo has filed an appeal, claiming that Nokia has violated its legal obligation to grant its intellectual property rights on fair and non discriminatory terms to Lenovo or third-party suppliers who need H.264 technology.
The ruling of the Munich court only applies to Germany. Nokia and Lenovo have been involved in a global technology war. Nokia sued Lenovo last year for alleged infringement of 20 patents. In addition to six cases in Germany, the Finnish company has filed lawsuits against Lenovo in the United States, Brazil and India.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is investigating Nokias patent infringement complaint, which is aimed at preventing the import of Lenovos laptops, tablets and desktops. (small)
