CNET News Daily Podcast: Apple fires back at Nokia

Apple responds to claims it is infringing on Nokia's handset patents, by accusing the Finnish phone maker of copying 13 of its smartphone technologies.

After being accused of using 10 Nokia patents without paying the proper licensing fees, Apple has turned the tables on Nokia. Apple filed a suit of its own on Friday alleging that Nokia is using 13 of Apple's iPhone-relating technologies without permission. It is currently awaiting a U.S. District Court judge in Delaware to sort this whole mess out.
