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.

Not doing proper research and stomping into someone else's intelectual property is despicable too.


It is somewhere between extremely difficult and impossible to be sure that there are no existing patents that apply to your work. I can't ever fault someone for developing a product without knowing it infringes on an existing patent, unless a trivial search would confirm that it does.
