After being sued by Apple not too long ago, it looks like HTC is turning the tables around and throwing the ball back into Apple’s park by countersuing them. Reuters has reported that HTC has just filed a lawsuit in the US District Court of Delaware against Apple, claiming that the Cupertino company is violating two patents by selling its line of Mac computers, iPads, iPhones, iPods and other devices. No word on what those patents are though.
It looks like Apple could possibly be getting a taste of its own medicine, as HTC is seeking to stop the importation of Apple products into the US, compensation for damages and three times the normal damages for willful infringement. Coincidentally, this lawsuit comes one day after Google announced its intentions to acquire Motorola Mobility to help out with Android’s patent situation – which could possibly help out Android manufacturers in the never ending battle against Apple.
