Legal Just when you thought the legal battle between Nokia and Apple couldn't get any more convoluted, Apple has filed its own complaint with the US International Trade Commission, seeking to have Nokia's products banned from the US market because they infringe on Apple's patents.

Well, they can afford it. Not that it makes business sense or that it would fly past anti-trust rules (well, unless they just take the patents and spin of Nokia as it was before, but as a perpetual no-cost licensee of their portfolio).

Having looked at the original Nokia complaint, I think that they had some cojones. I haven't seen the original list of patents, but the original handful cited were REALLY grasping at straws -- and Apple's countersuit was pretty strong. I hope Nokia has found something more substantial in this later batch.
