Cell phone maker Nokia Corporation announced that it has filed patent infringement complaints in Europe against Vitelcom that involve Nokia patents covering GSM and GPRS technologies. Nokia seeks injunctions against the continued sale and marketing of Vitelcom's mobile phone products covered by the patents in suit and/or monetary damages.

"Nokia has invested considerable time, energy, and resources in its own R&D, which has yielded many significant inventions and allowed Nokia to build one of the industry's largest portfolios of technology patents," said Ilkka Rahnasto, vice president, IPR, Nokia. "Vitelcom should play by the rules and license needed intellectual property. In this situation, it has become necessary to take the dispute to the courts. We believe Vitelcom is using Nokia patented technologies without authority from or compensation to Nokia."

Nokia claims to be the leading patent owner for GSM and GPRS technologies. The company has a licensing program to allow new manufacturers to make GSM and GPRS phones at fair and reasonable licensing terms.
