INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT
1.
 
This is Apple Inc.’s (“Apple”) amended responsive pleading under Fed. R.Civ. P. 12, and contains Apple’s defenses to the counterclaims asserted by defendants andcounterclaim-plaintiffs Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics America,Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (collectively, “Samsung”), aswell as Apple’s Counterclaims In Reply to Samsung’s Counterclaims.2.
 
Apple responds to the allegations contained in the numbered paragraphs of Samsung’s Counterclaims below, but first provides this overview of its response.3.
 
Apple is a pioneer in mobile phone and tablet computer design andtechnology. Apple has designed its mobile phones and tablet computers with distinctivefeatures that make them immediately recognizable as iPhones and iPads. Apple hascoupled these distinguishing design details with a highly advanced interface that makesthe iPhone and iPad user experience simple, intuitive, and efficient. Apple spendsbillions of dollars annually on research and development, and has applied for andreceived numerous design and utility patents to protect its innovations from copying.4.

Apple filed this case to stop Samsung’s unauthorized copying of Apple’siPhone and iPad.6.
 
With respect to Samsung’s counterclaims of patent infringement, Appledenies that it infringes any valid claim of the patents identified in Counts I - XII of Samsung’s Counterclaims (“Samsung Asserted Patents”). In any event, Samsung isprecluded from enforcing the patents it asserts in this case by virtue of its licenseagreements with telecommunications chipset manufacturers, including Intel andQualcomm, from which Apple buys chipsets that Samsung claims infringe its patents toincorporate into Apple’s end products.7.
 
At various times, Samsung declared seven of the Samsung AssertedPatents to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (“ETSI”), a leadingstandard-setting organization (“SSO”), as purportedly essential to practice the UniversalMobile Telecommunications Standard (“UMTS”) standard, the world’s most widelyadopted telecommunications standard. (The patents Samsung has declared essential tothe UMTS standard are referred to collectively herein as the “Declared-EssentialPatents”). Time and again, however, Samsung deliberately and deceptively failed todisclose its purported intellectual property rights (“IPR”) to the Third GenerationPlatform Partnership (“3GPP”), the SSO that set the UMTS standard, before its membersdecided to incorporate into the standard technologies purportedly covered by Samsung’spatents, in violation of ETSI’s IPR policy. Furthermore, Samsung issued a writtendeclaration to the SSO, committing to license its Declared-Essential Patents to allimplementers of the UMTS standard on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory(“FRAND”) terms, but when 3GPP was considering alternative technologies, deliberately
