Discovery is just beginning in this matter, and, therefore, Counterclaim-Defendants have not yet fully collected and reviewed all of the information and materials that may be relevant to the matters and issues raised herein. Accordingly, Counterclaim-Defendants reserve the right to amend, modify, or expand these defenses and to take further positions as discovery proceeds in this matter. FIRST DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (Invalidity) Upon information and belief, and without prejudice to further amendment upon information found during discovery, each asserted claim of the patents asserted by Apple is invalid for failure to satisfy the conditions of patentability as specified under one or more sections of Title 35 of the United States Code, including, without limitation, 35 U.S.C. 102, 103, and/or 112. SECOND DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (Non-Infringement) Counterclaim-Defendants have not and do not infringe any claim of the patents asserted by Apple. 34 THIRD DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (Prosecution History Estoppel) Upon information and belief, by reason of the proceedings in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") during the prosecution of the applications resulting in the issuance of the patents asserted by Apple, namely, the admissions, representations, and amendments made on behalf of the applicants for those patents, Apple is estopped from extending the coverage of the asserted claims in the asserted patents, including under the doctrine of equivalents, to cover the accused instrumentalities. FOURTH DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (Acquiescence, Estoppel, Waiver, or Laches) Upon information and belief, Apple has made claims that are barred in whole or in part by the doctrines of acquiescence, estoppel, laches, or waiver. FIFTH DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (35 U.S.C. 287 Failure to Mark) Upon information and belief, Apple's pre-lawsuit claims for damages as to the asserted patents are barred, in whole or in part, for failure to comply with 35 U.S.C. 287. SIXTH DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (28 U.S.C. 1498) Upon information and belief, Mobility may sell and/or offer for sale in the United States the accused instrumentalities to the United States government or to third parties who sell the accused instrumentalities to the United States government. Mobility therefore is entitled to assert 28 U.S.C. 1498 as a defense to Apple's allegations. 35 SEVENTH DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (Failure to State a Claim Upon Which Relief Can Be Granted) Upon information and belief, Apple has failed to state a claim against either Counterclaim-Defendant upon which relief may be granted. EIGHTH DEFENSE AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE (Reservation of Remaining Defenses) Counterclaim-Defendants reserve all affirmative defenses under Rule 8(c) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Patent Laws of the United States and any other defenses, at law or in equity, that may now exist or in the future be available based on discovery and further factual investigation in this case.
