Well, it is not only Nokia that is throwing punches as Apple had also taking to stand at the federal court in San Jose, to sue the Finnish based Startup for distributing most of its patents to PEA –patent assertion companies — so that they can “maximize the aggregate royalties that can be extracted from product companies”
