Nokia asks ITC to ban iPhone, iPod, and MacBook import

In addition to the lawsuit that Nokia filed over GSM standards and last week's International Trade Commission complaint, Nokia just filed a second complaint with the federal court, alleging that Apple's infringing several "implementation patents" that cover everything from camera sensors to touchscreens. The biggest bombshell so far is the ITC complaint, in which Nokia's asking the commission to ban imports of basically every Apple mobile product from the MacBook to the iPhone for infringing its device patents.
To "win the war," Nokia is taking at least one page from Apple's play book, cutting back on the number of individual devices it plans to offer, just as Cupertino has pulled ahead of it in smartphone revenue.

Good luck, Nokia. Extreme move? I am not sure, what do you think?
