Apple Countersues Nokia Over Patents

WILMINGTON, Del. (CN) - Apple countersued cell phone giant Nokia for patent infringement on Friday, two months after Nokia sued Apple for allegedly using its technology in its iPhones. Apple says in Federal court that Nokia infringed on 13 of its patents, and says the Finland-based company copied its iPhone to stay competitive.

Nokia "sought to gain an unjust competitive advantage over Apple" by charging unwarranted fees to use patents that allegedly cover industry compatibility standards and by seeking to obtain access to Apple's intellectual property," the complaint states.

Nokia's October lawsuitclaimed that Apple infringed on 10 of its patents over both phone calls and Wi-Fi access.

Both lawsuits were filed in Federal court.

Apple is represented by Richard Horowitz with Potter Anderson.

Jack Blumenfeld with Morris Nichols represented Nokia in the original lawsuit.
