Nokia has filed a lawsuit against RIM, HTC, and ViewSonic with the Federal Trade Commission in the U.S. claiming that the companies have infringed upon Nokia's patents. The Finnish company names 45 patents in the lawsuit, which cover technologies such as "dual function antennas, power management and multimode radios" and things that "enhance software features including application stores, multitasking, navigation, conversational message display, dynamic menus, data encryption and retrieval of email attachments on a mobile device." Nokia says that it already licenses its technology to over 40 companies, but it notes that it "had to file these actions to end the unauthorized use of our proprietary innovations and technologies, which have not been widely licensed." The lawsuit was also filed in Germany.source: Nokia
