Legal Remember when Steve Jobs launched the iPhone, and held it up in the air, proudly proclaiming "Boy, have we patented it", followed by a massive applause of the adoring audience? It may seem like this wasn't just an empty claim, either. During the earnings conference call yesterday, the company hinted at possible legal action against Palm were the Pre to infringe on iPhone patents.

Obviously apple are worried about the palm pre ... and it also shows that software patents are stupid ... multi touch is not an apple invention anyway. Who looses out? the consumers and clients. Honestly i hope that no court will take apple's claims seriously ...the palm pre form what one can tell from the preview etc. has a lot more to offer than the iphone and has some very nice features ...

"but Palm seems to directly emulate touch interface that iPhone innovated"

again ... apple has not innovated multitouch ... they may have been the first to put it into a product, but htat is an entirely different matter
