A federal jury has found that Apple did not infringe on five wireless technology patents, Reuters reports. The patents are owned by Canadian company Conversant Intellectual Property Management Inc., which bought Core Wireless Licensing Sarl and its 2,000 Nokia patents and patent applications in 2011, including the communications protocols for the 2G, 3G and 4G standards on which most mobile communication is based. Core Wireless sued Apple in 2012, seeking $100 million in damages and a percentage of future device sales for Apple’s use of its patents in iPhones and iPads. The jury also rejected Apple’s claim that Core Wireless breached its obligation to license its patents fairly.
