Ericsson AB is suing Apple over patents relating to mobile phones and smartphones and the company is alleging that Apple ,may have infringed on as many as 41 of their mobile patents.
Ericsson has said that they have offered Apple a license for the patents in question although Apple apparently decided not to license the 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 previous paid Ericsson AB liscense fees for patents, although the agreement expired in January and the two companies were not able to come to a new deal.
