Legal And we have another interesting development in the ongoing and ever-expanding idiocy that is the War of the High-Fiving Lawyers Mobile Patent World War. Motorola, now a central player in this worldwide conflict that is hurting consumers' wallets and clogging legal systems all over the world, has come to HTC's rescue by seeking to invalidate the patents Apple sued HTC with earlier this year.

So if I read this correctly they are seeking to have Apple's patents invalidated, patents that were issued by the patent office based on submissions by Apple, but they also want to be awarded their legal fees and any other "relief" as the court sees fit - costs that I assume would have to be paid by Apple - as damages for bringing the action to invalidate the patents.

Isn't that like having someone run a red light and hit you then expecting their car manufacturer to pay for your repairs?
