Default Round One to Apple: Nokia Staggered

The International Trade Commission (ITC) has ruled in Apple's favor in their patent dispute with Nokia. No explanation was given for the decision, but this is only one of many lawsuits and countersuits underway. Looks like Nokia has embraced the philosophy that "if we can't beat them in the marketplace, litigate." Sad, really, as the ultimate costs of these legal actions get dumped onto the consumer eventually.</p>
