As per a report on Bloomberg, the battle between Apple and Swedish mobile telecom gear maker Ericsson doesn’t seems to come to peace. Ericsson says it’s filing seven new lawsuits against Apple, and had filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) requesting an exclusion order against Apple’s products for infringing Ericsson patents.
“We have offered them a license; they have a turned it down,” said Kasim Alfalahi, Ericsson’s chief intellectual property officer. “We’re not a company that’s planning to extract more than the value we put on the table.”
Apple had been paying royalties to Ericsson before a license expired in mid-January. When talks over renewal failed, the companies sued each other, seeking court rulings on whether Ericsson’s royalty demands on fundamental technology were fair and reasonable.
