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.

But Apple can patent, for instance, the application of multitouch to a cellphone, and maybe even some aspects of their software that gives natural feedback to users.


So perhaps Palm holds a patent for "copy-paste functionality on a handheld device"? That would explain a lot.
