Legal Well, this is about as surprising as the tides rolling in: HTC has sued Apple for patent infringement. Earlier this year, Apple sued HTC, focussing on the Taiwanese phone maker's Android devices. HTC has now responded with a patent suit of its own.

Patent theorem

If all those patent suits would be real, you could almost formulate the following theorem:
"Consider a set composed of any number of (smart)phone makers; if you take a 2-tuple of any of them (A,B), it is always possible to find a patent p owned by A that is violated by B."
