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.

Yes, I remember this too; and because of the legal concept of patent exhaustion, the whole claim that Nokia could demand GSM related license fees from Apple, after the component supplier of the GSM chips had already paid the license, should have been discarded. The patents dealing with antenna design, etc. not already being licensed, were obviously still Apple's responsibility.
