Nokia (NOK) is seeking to block the sale of most RIM (RIMM) products in the U.S., Canada and U.K. through the enforcement of the ruling of an arbitrator, which found in favor of the Finnish company in a dispute over patents related to its wireless local access network (WLAN) technology. The arbitrator, the firm says, ruled that RIM is "not entitled to manufacture or sell WLAN products without first agreeing royalties with Nokia."
