Today Apple filed a countersuit against Nokia, claiming that it is infringing on 13 Apple patents. Nokia sued Apple in October over wireless patents. At that time, Nokia alleged that Apple was infringing on 10 of its patents concerning the vital workings of GSM-based cell phones. Apple's countersuit addresses a number of Nokia's claims, refuting many of them. Apple's own complaints point out that Nokia has publicly admitted that it will copy good ideas. "Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours," said Bruce Sewell, Apple's General Counsel and senior vice president. In the lawsuit, Apple says that Nokia's original suit against Apple is in response to its own declining market share, and represents Nokia's attempt to regain lost revenues. Apple claims that Nokia is asking unfair licensing rates for its valid patents.
