In a statement, BlackBerry said it accepted the court’s decision, but was “disappointed” that the court did not agree with its arguments.
Nokia filed a request for arbitration in April 2016 relating to whether certain payments due under a patent licence agreement were owed to Nokia under the deal.
BlackBerry said the dispute did not involve allegations of IP infringement and it would continue to pursue separate patent infringement claims against Nokia in the US and Germany.
BlackBerry concluded: “This ruling does not change BlackBerry's assertion that Nokia is infringing on our intellectual property and we are continuing to vigorously pursue legal remedies in both the US and Germany."
Nokia said it was pleased with the decision and that it “confirms that BlackBerry had failed to make certain payments to Nokia under a patent licence agreement between the parties”.
It added: “Nokia continues to believe that BlackBerry's unrelated claims of patent infringement by Nokia are without merit.”
