Legal Back in October, Nokia sued Apple for patent infringement. In a response back then, Apple already stated it would defend itself vigorously. We now know just how vigorously: Apple has countersued Nokia, claiming the Finnish electronics company is infringing 13 of Apple's patents. It's on.

If apple has a valid patent on flicking, it wouldn't be possible to implement reasonable open source UIs for touch screen devices. Flicking is also simple physical simulation on computer, how in the world could you patent that? You can't really own laws of nature.


Agreed. Thus the use of quotation marks in
...Nokia walks away with the only "legitimate" license to pinch, flick, blah, blah, blah...
