    Default Apple Countersues Nokia


    Having been sued by Nokia for patent infringement, Apple today responded by filing a countersuit of its own. The new complaint accuses Nokia of violating 13 of Apple's patents. In announcing the counterclaim, Bruce Sewell, Apple’s General Counsel and senior vice president, said “Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours.”

    On October 22, Nokia sued Apple, saying the iPhone maker was taking a “free ride” on Nokia's research and development efforts, which the Finnish phone giant said it had spent €40 billion on. Saying, essentially, "no, you're the copycat," Apple's countersuit denies all Nokia's claims of patent infringement against it and accuses Nokia of trying to copy the iPhone.

    In 2007, Apple introduced the iPhone a ground-breaking device that allowed users access to the functionality of the already popular iPod on a revolutionary mobile phone and Internet device.
    ...
    In contrast, Nokia made a different business decision and remained focused on traditional mobile wireless handsets with conventional user interfaces. As a result, Nokia has rapidly lost share in the market for high-end mobile phones.
    ...
    In response, Nokia chose to copy the iPhone, especially its enormously popular and patented design and user interface.
    The lawsuit complains that Nokia has infringed on 13 Apple patents, though in their press release Apple was not specific on which ones.

    Apple is asking the US District Court of Delaware to completely dismiss Nokia’s suit, with prejudice (meaning Nokia cannot sue again), and demands that Nokia pay damages for infringing Apple's patents, as well as interest and legal fees.

    This step had been predicted by observers at the time of Nokia's original lawsuit. It's a fairly common approach for companies when negotiations break down and end up in court. Most observers believe this is all hardball negotiating tactics, and that the case will eventually be settled out of court. Otherwise, the fight could spread into the European court system and possibly end up in the U.S. International Trade Commission.

    It is fun to watch but unfortunately to has two down sides. Firstly the only people who make money are the lawyer and we all pay for that in higher product retail prices. Secondly it discourages companies from innovating and doing new thing unless they have a truck load of money for lawyers, see first point.

    It seems like a lot of people are getting infected by a script that a user, djoscar, ran the other day on a bunch of posts. There are now a couple more users running the same script in the post, just like the one directly above me was. That same user has 5-7 more posts with the script in them.

    (No longer above me because of deleted account now. Thank you very much MMi team.)

    No...just no. Fail!

    Interesting...I might just watch and see what happens.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    of course if you're in the US u won't see many of their phones. None of their networks can use a phone that has 2 camera for video calling.

    They should have a petition signing thing( each of the individual companies) and charge less money for those who sign it!
    That Thanks button is there for a reason!

    It is not Paul. Read what I wrote a few posts back. A user the other day infected several others. You can find them by canceling the script and look for the emotecon or 1 word. Then searc user post and it will show you the applet they are trying to run. It is from a website called djoscar. Djoscar posted it a couple days ago from a googlecode site. I have been reporting them as fast as I can so mods can delete them.
