Nokia is now.............
a Patent troll????????????
Nokia – the bit in Finland, not the bit that belongs to Microsoft – isn’t making mobile phones anymore, but it’s still making money from them. The company will licence its smartphone IP to LG, the first such deal Nokia has done since selling its phone biz to Microsoft. It’s not the first deal like this Nokia has done, though. …
A patent troll is a company that buys IP from other businesses (often failed), never makes any product and then tends to earn money by court cases.
It's a high risk investment business.
Nokia on the other hand has a good IP portfolio built from its hard work over the years. It was clever too, it only licenced its tech to Microsoft for 10 years, it didn't sell them.
