Nokia has emerged victorious once again from a patent case with another company.
Like Apple RIM has agreed to make a one-time payment to Nokia and then pay regular royalties.
â€œWe are very pleased to have resolved our patent licensing issues with RIM and reached this new agreement, while maintaining Nokiaâ€™s ability to protect our unique product differentiation,â€ said Paul Melin, chief intellectual property officer at Nokia. â€œThis agreement demonstrates Nokiaâ€™s industry leading patent portfolio and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities in the mobile communications market.â€
The amounts involved has been revealed yet, but Nokia managed to secure a patent settlement of $608 million and ongoing royalties from Apple last year, which may give an indication of the windfall Nokia can expect.
