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.

Good thing innovation is not the only determining factor with IP. If it had been, Palm, should have done something when other vendors started using its innovative touchscreen method for inputing data into a smartphone. But since they did not and instead let everyone else play it would be small of Apple to persue thwarting the Palm Pre at this point.
