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.

There's one bit of information lacking in the article and in my knowledge of the whole iPhone-related patent threats by Apple.

Does Apple hold a multitouch screen patent? If so, which seems impossible according to what I how about the "innovative" requirement for patents to be granted, what happens next?

Is that patent even filed?

If not, all those who've been threatened can rest assured that Apple can't sue them. But what about Elan suing them?
