The patent wars – Nokia v Apple

By now, I’m sure you have heard of the latest headline patent case of Nokia suing Apple. To go beyond the headlines, I suggest you read Joff Wild’s interesting analysis of the implications of the case over at IAM Blog – Nokia v Apple. His take is that, played right, it could be a PR boost for Apple. It could also change the dynamics of the standard setting for wireless.
By the way, Joff wonders what will happen to Apple’s stock price today. The answer is that it immediately rose (along with the NASDAQ) but then dropped a bit. I wouldn’t put to much emphasis on any short term price movements, however. The implications of this suit will take a long time to play out.
