Ericsson unloads legal pressure on Apple over patents



The Swedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson filed several lawsuits against the Apple over patents violation, said Friday.

“Apple currently uses our technology without authorization and request therefore the help of the court and the ITC”, the US International Trade Commission said in a statement Kasim Alfalahi, head of Ericsson’s intellectual property.

“Apple products benefit from it invented and patented by engineers at Ericsson (…) We are determined to share our innovations and tried in good faith to find a fair solution,” he added.

Ericsson filed two complaints with the ITC-seven at a Texas court. The Swedish company tries to sell Apple products using standards-related mobile communication 2G and 4G / LTE (Long-Term Evolution) patent is prohibited. He also wants to be granted damages for violation of patents for “critical” components of other Apple devices.

The Cupertino company had to renew their license agreements with Ericsson last month, but rejected the offer of the Swedish manufacturer, considering they were that asking too much money.
