Legal Back in October, Nokia sued Apple for patent infringement. In a response back then, Apple already stated it would defend itself vigorously. We now know just how vigorously: Apple has countersued Nokia, claiming the Finnish electronics company is infringing 13 of Apple's patents. It's on.

There was no chance Apple would have licensed their Multitouch patents.

So, Nokia sued them knowing they will get sued back and as always this will end in a cross-licensing deal. Nokia would give up a few of the telecom/cellphone patents they have amassed over decades and in return would get Multitouch.

If this is the case, then well played Nokia.
