BlackBerry also says that some of the patents Nokia used were those it acquired in 2011 as part of a group that bought Nortel's patents for $4.5 billion after the company's bankruptcy.

However, BlackBerry has accused Nokia of using standard compliant products without receiving a license or the approval to do so from BlackBerry. On the other hand, BlackBerry is demanding some compensation from Nokia for the unauthorized use of their technology. However, the lawsuit doesn't specify the amount that the company wants from Nokia.
