Finnish handset maker Nokia Corp. said Wednesday it is stepping up its fight against Research In Motion Ltd., taking legal action against the BlackBerry handset maker in a continuing dispute over their patent-licensing agreement.
In a statement, Nokia said it is seeking enforcement of a Stockholm arbitration ruling against the Canadian company that could prevent RIM from selling devices equipped with wireless local area network technology, known commercially as Wi-Fi, until it agrees on royalty terms with Nokia.
RIM has said that its patent-licensing agreement with Nokia covers the disputed Wi-Fi technology and therefore shouldn`t require an additional royalty payment.
