Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

The patent says "....in a pointing and control device.".

My understanding is "trackpad" may fall under the defined category, but "multitouch screen" is very arguable.
