Message Text: A judge with the U.S. International Trade Commission today said Apple isn?t violating Nokia?s rights on five patents related to technology used in mobile telephones.

Administrative Law Judge E. James Gildea dismissed Nokia's claims against Apple. However, the Judge's findings are subject to review by the commission, which has the power to block imports of products found to infringe U.S. patents.

This is the winning ruling for Apple in its patent fight with Nokia. The two mobile-phone makers have been embroiled in litigation since October 2009, when Nokia filed a lawsuit accusing Apple of infringing patents and demanding royalties on iPhones sold since the device?s introduction. The seven Nokia patents in the complaint relate to "Nokia'innovations" that are now being used by Apple to create key features in its products in the area of user interface, as well as camera, antenna and power management technologies, the company had said.

Each company has since accused the other of infringing an increasing number of patents.

Nokia had also opened fronts in Europe in its patent war with iPhone maker Apple, launching lawsuits in Germany and the Netherlands last December.

Apple has also its own patent-infringement claims against Nokia at the Washington agency.
