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.

"I don't mind the patents however waiting for a company to make billions on a product before enforcing it is despicable.


So is using someone else's technology (Nokia) for three years, making billions, without paying the license fee. But then, I guess thats not a problem if you are Steve Jobs.

No, but if you are Steve Jobs you see a big problem when someone install Os X on non-Apple hardware (Psystar) or when someone (HTC & Google) tries to sell a better alternative to iPad.
