The European Patent Office ruled on Wednesday that Nokia and HTC are not infringing on a patent owned by IPCom. The patent is related to how a cellphone connects to a network, and IPCom isn't satisfied with the ruling. "Today's judgment does not impact the successful rulings regarding infringement proceeding against Nokia and HTC in Germany and UK," the company said, noting that it will appeal the ruling "immediately," Reuters said. A German court initially ruled Nokia was infringing on IPCom's patents. "IPCom needs to recognize its position and end its unrealistic demands," Paul Melin, Nokia's vice president of intellectual property, said. IPCom has licensed its patents to other phone makers but HTC and Nokia have so far refused to license the technology.
