Apple is getting ready for its patent battle with Nokia at the International Trade Commission, as it has hired a number of top patent lawyers, to help the company argue it various patent cases with other manufacturers within the smartphone industry.
Both Apple and Nokia are both alleging that each company has infrigneged on the other ones patents for smartphones, and Apple also has similar lawsuits with other smartphone makers including HTC and Motorola.
According to Business Week, Apple is the most sued technology company since 2008, which is the year after Apple introduced the first generation iPhone.
We suspect it will be quite some time before we find out what the outcome of the various lawsuits will be, whatever happens it could end up changing the smartphone industry.
