Lawsuit: Apple v Nokia

The legal scramble is about to start, so get some more popcorn, fellow readers, all the best lawyers in the world are about to meet in the Apple-Nokia dogfight lawsuit.

In the blue corner, there are Nokia's lawyers, accusing their opponent of infringing on a range of its patent.
In the red corner, there are Apple's lawyers, actively preparing their legal team with the help of more lawyers specialized in tech patent infringement lawsuits.

To make it simpler, we'll quote Lyle Vander Schaaf, an attorney at "Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione" law firm in Washington, who works preparing cases for the commission:
“Usually you have one 800-pound gorilla going after a new entrant. Here you’ve got 800-pound gorillas fighting each other.”

Apple sits on $40 billion in cash, and we think Nokia would love some of that to compensate for its diminishing profits since the first iPhone got announced.
It seems that the tech lawyer field is certainly not affected by the financial crisis, and a lot of lawyers will walk away with fat paychecks.

Would you like to hear more about this lawsuit ?
Do you guys think this could affect us, regular consumers ?

I would like to hear how much money the lawyers get paid for dragging out this case as long as they can. Also if the companies are forced to pay any settlement money. And just for fun, I hope Nokia wins.

I was expecting this to be about the suit itself... WHY are they battling again?

If Nokia wins they should blast that annoying ring tone of theirs outside of Apples headquarters for a month.

Apple could go bankrupt and I wouldn't care less. I respect Steve Jobs. I admire what he has done. But they haven't made anything relevant or worth a damn since the ipod.

I'd surely be interested in more news. Short term regular users will not be affected, but when the lawsuit ends and damages and legal fees will be established they we might feel a slight pinch.

Even so I think neither company will want this litigation to affect their clients, think it's more of a publicity stunt
