Apple late last week accused Nokia of stealing its technologies and countersued the world’s largest maker of mobile phones in response to accusations that Nokia made earlier this year.

“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.

Responding to a lawsuit brought against the company by Nokia, Apple has filed a countersuit claiming that Nokia was infringing 13 Apple patents. Apple did not say which patents were infringed by Nokia and which technologies they cover.

Back in October Nokia filed a complaint against Apple, accusing the latter of patent infringement. The ten patents in suit relate to technologies fundamental to making devices which are compatible with one or more of the GSM, UMTS (3G WCDMA) and wireless LAN standards. The patents cover wireless data, speech coding, security and encryption and are infringed by all Apple iPhone models shipped since the iPhone was introduced in 2007, according to Nokia.
