After Apple levelled no less than 20 different patent violation claims against HTC in US courts, the Taiwanese company has offered its own opinion on the matter, saying that it has done nothing wrong.
HTC has become a significant player in the smartphone industry over the last couple of years, thanks largely to the Android operating system created by US search giant Google.
Now it is defending itself against Apple's claims that the new Nexus One mobile, among several others, is in violation of patents.
In a statement, HTC defended itself on the grounds that it "is not only an innovator in mobile technology but also an owner of many patents".
A statement from the company added: "We take American and international patent rights protection seriously. We will closely co-operate with the US justice system in the case to protect our own innovative values and rights."
Various HTC smartphones are involved in Apple's complaints, including the T-Mobile G1 and the Touch Pro, both of which are manufactured by the Taiwanese firm.
