    Following on from being served with a patent lawsuit in March by Apple, which accused it of infringing on 20 patents, Taiwanese company HTC has issued a press release announcing that it is in turn filing a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission, suing Apple for “Patent Infringementâ€. The press release mentions five alleged HTC patent infringements by Apple products that are outlined in the complaint.

    “As the innovator of the original Windows Mobile PocketPC Phone Edition in 2002 and the first Android smartphone in 2008, HTC believes the industry should be driven by healthy competition and innovation that offer consumers the best, most accessible mobile experiences possible,†said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of North America, HTC Corporation. “We are taking this action against Apple to protect our intellectual property, our industry partners, and most importantly our customers that use HTC phones.â€

    Apple has yet to comment on the counter claims from HTC
