Are you guys even reading the article? Not all Ericsson's patents are SEP -- or licensed under FRAND terms. EDIT: just read Ericsson's filing. I have to backtrack my comment about Ericsson's patents in question -- the lawsuit is about Ericsson's SEPs. Apple is essentially arguing that (1) Ericsson's SEPs are not in fact "essential" -- therefore Apple does not infringe on Ericsson's patents. But, (2) if they are "essential," they must be licensed under FRAND terms.
