Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

Misuse of patenting system

There is industry, where innovation was really strong during last few years. I speak about mobile phones, smartphones etc. We saw iPhone, we saw great Symbian phones, and, finally we saw Android phones. Hardware gets better and better and so does software.

Now, a patenting system, that is meant to promote innovations is going to kill that.

Is patenting system working right? You answer.
