Update (2022-02-16):

The lawsuit between Apple and Ericsson regarding a number of standard-essential patents (read more below) will not take place until June 2023.

According to Foss Patents Apple wanted the trial to begin in December, but the infamous court in East Texas, which specializes in this type of case, considered it premature.

Given the structure of the American legal system, we can probably count on a number of appeals back and forth until one party agrees to a settlement, which can take several years.

Previously (2022-01-25):

Ericsson has filed lawsuits against Apple in several countries, reports Juve Patent. They were submitted to three German courts and one court was in Brazil and the Netherlands.

The lawsuits concern the same dispute over license fees on standard essential patents that led Apple to sue Ericsson in a Texas court in December. Apple’s license from 2015 expired in December and the company currently has no license for the current technologies.

According to Juve Patent, Ericsson has requested preliminary import bans for the iPhone in the Netherlands and Brazil.

Florian Müller on Foss Patents writes that he is surprised that Ericsson has not also sued Apple in London, but reckons that it may be underway in a second wave of lawsuits. He also writes that Ericsson is not a competitor to Apple and thus has nothing to gain from an import ban. It is therefore only a matter of getting a fair payment for their contributions to the 4g and 5g technologies.
