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.

Oh, WTH, this is great news. I love the irony of the entire situation :-D

Dear sir, you sure aren't the only one! Apple has been suing people over multitouch, they've been threatening, they've been bullying, they've been doing everything they can to piss other people and companies off..and now they are getting sued themselves over the EXACT same thing. Oh god, this is wonderful!

FWIW: Apple is defending their patents after several companies ignored them and went ahead and chose to produce products and see if Apple will sue.

HTC will lose. Google is already in talks with Apple at the top brass to figure out how to diffuse the situation and Nokia is going to fall on its face with it's request while having to deal with Apple's counter.

Whether you like it or not, Apple has amassed nearly 4000 patents since 2004 for their latest products.

They've learned from the past. They won't repeat that mistake.
