Ericsson Sues Apple for Patent Infringement

Ericsson announced a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple, saying many of its patents are essential to the 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE standards; others are critical to other non-standardized aspects of Apple's devices. Apple's global license agreement for Ericsson's mobile technology expired last month.  Ericsson said Apple has declined to take a new license offered on FRAND terms.

Specifically, Ericsson filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) requesting an exclusion order against Apple's products for infringing Ericsson patents that are essential to the 2G and 4G/LTE standards.

Ericsson also filed a second ITC complaint seeking an exclusion order and multiple complaints in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas requesting damages and injunctions for infringement of patents that are critical to many other aspects of Apple's devices.
