The long-standing legal feud between Nokia and wireless chip maker Qualcomm expanded today as Nokia filed claims against Qualcomm's patents in Germany and the Netherlands. If this suit is successful, Qualcomm could be prohibited from enforcing some patents used in Nokia's mobile phones.

The long-standing legal feud between Nokia and wireless chip maker Qualcomm expanded today as Nokia filed claims against Qualcomm's patents in Germany and the Netherlands. If this suit is successful, Qualcomm could be prohibited from enforcing some patents used in Nokia's mobile phones.Nokia filed complaints in the Regional Court of Mannheim in Germany and in The Hague District Court in the Netherlands. Nokia wants the courts to rule that Qualcomm's patents have expired.

The two companies are fighting over the renewal of a patent sharing agreement. Ultimately, Nokia wants a lower rate for using Qualcomm's technology, while Qualcomm has threatened Nokia if the handset maker stops making payments.
