Legal Well, the first of the big patent litigations is over. Since this one involves Apple, the big winner is obviously the highly innovative company from Cupertiono, right? The company from which all others copy, right? Well, no, not exactly. The big winner is Nokia.

Nokia won?

Apple will pay Nokia a one-time fee, as well as ongoing royalty fees. In return, both companies drop all litigation and complaints.

If I remember correctly, Apple's case was that Nokia demanded a cross patent licensing agreement instead of a simple license fee. If this is indeed the case, it seems that it is Apple that won.
