Copyright, Infringement and Stupidity: Update 2

We are back on the Nokia Vs. Apple theme today and guess what? Nokia is being childish (not a surprise). Having lost a lawsuit where the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) ruled that Apple did not violate any of five patents claimed by Nokia, Nokia has turned around and filed a second complaint against Apple! Very, very childish. Like a younger sibling never willing to admit defeat (and trust me, I know this feeling. I have a younger sister)! The new complaint claims that Apple have infringed 7 more patents, now being used in “virtually all” Apple products. 
  The seven Nokia patents in the new complaint relate to Nokia’s pioneering innovations that are now being used by Apple to create key features in its products in the areas of multi-tasking operating systems, data synchronization, positioning, call quality and the use of Bluetooth accessories.

  This second ITC complaint follows the initial determination in Nokia’s earlier ITC filing, announced by the ITC on Friday, March 25. Nokia does not agree with the ITC’s initial determination that there was no violation of Section 337 in that complaint and is waiting to see the full details of the ruling before deciding on the next steps in that case.
Nokia says that it now has 46 patents infringed by Apple, many of them dating back to as much as early iPhone development. Yeh, right! They just want to make money from Apple and not products, which have been a complete fail lately. 
Now that you have this information (that I got from got from here), tell me, is this an issue of infringement or stupidity?
