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.

Apple is that you don't like their products (which is fine as they are not a monopoly so you are always free to buy some other companies products) or that their corporate image irritates you.

Except they sue any competitor that use anything remotely related to multitouch. So that makes them a monopoly in multitouch devices. I can't buy competing products because they don't allow it. They are control freaks.
I actually like their product but their policy sucks. I'll never buy anything from them and I'll urge everyone not to buy from them. Their policy does not only affect their customers. It is detrimental to society at large and should be condemned as such. The public must know. They are using their marketing machine to hide their behaviour. If you don't think their policy is a problem, I'll debate you and I'll try to convince you.
