Legal Finally - after a few weeks, HTC has actually officially issued a statement regarding the patent infringement lawsuit Apple has thrown towards the Taiwanese phone maker. As you probably already anticipated, HTC states it will fully defend itself against Apple. It's on, it's on.

RE[6]: OK, supose Apple wins

" US products are already very much "on the nose" internationally. I am aware of some major contracts for aircraft, for example, that have entirely been awarded on the criteria "as long as it doesn't contain an US-made parts".
Well regarding aircrafts its a completely different reason why they don't want US made parts and that's Weapons export licences (fighter and other military hardware and spear-parts). And that criteria limits their choice to Russian and Chinese and France aircrafts. "

My example was for an aircraft design which was in fact of European origin. The non-European customers got to assemble most of the fleet in their own country. They chose it because the Americans are unbelieveably precious about their alleged IP, and that attitude flies in the face of the sovreignity of other nations.

As the Americans steadily become more and more precious about alleged IP, this type of thing will happen more and more often.
