nokir e828 sued

The infamous Nokia N73 clone has apparently moved enough units to capture Nokia’s suits, and the Finnish phone manufacturer is now going after extremely small shops in Hong Kong that carry the Nokir E828 (read review) after realizing that copyright-protection laws in China have more holes than a sponge. Strongarm tactics applied requires shops carrying the Nokir E828 to return all available units on a voluntary basis in addition to paying a $3,870 fine. I suppose the suits at Nokia could not go after the real culprits and hence had to take some action to satiate shareholders, but the legality of such a move is questionable from a moral perspective.
