Nokia files to get several Samsung products banned from being sold, surprisingly, in aid of Apple. According to the report, it is the only outsider to back Apple's claims of injunctions on some Samsung products that have infringed their intellectual property rights. It can be noted that Samsung and Apple have been involved in a very bitter case concerning patent infringement.
Apple seeks to have some of Samsung products that were found to violate their patents from getting sold in the US but their appeal was not honored in the District Court. As a result, they are taking it to the Court of Appeals. Nokia has asked to be given more time to submit their statement and Nokia argued that a District Judge was wrong to rule against Apple's request for injunction.
It can be recalled that not long ago, the Finnish giant has also filed legal proceedings against the iPhone maker and Apple was said to have settled out of court.
These two companies will take on the currently number one manufacturer in the US Court of Appeals and the case will be heard later this year.
