Nokia alleged of intellectual property violation

Thailand: A Thai software company – Globetech Ltd, a subsidiary of IT conglomerate CDG Group – filed a lawsuit against Nokia at the Intellectual Property and International Trade Court. The company claimed that Nokia’s Ovi map violated intellectual property right. It used Globetech’s digital map data without permission. Both are asked to pay compensation worth THB 540 million (THB: Thai Baht).
Globetech General Manager Wichai Saenghirunwattana said that the company found that its digital map data appeared in Nokia’s Ovi Map without permission. The company has continuously collected the map data of Thailand for 20 years.
On the other hand, Nokia responded through a press release that it would take whatever steps are needed to defend itself against a THB 540 million patent-violation suit filed by a Thai software company.
