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.

Getting rid of patents isn't the answer though - companies aren't going to spend millions on R&D unless they have some sort of protection.

Why not ? It's just the price to pay to be first on the market. Did the patent system prevent the iPhone clones ? No, but Apple was first and could milk the cow in the meantime. Removing the patent system would just prevent that ridiculous thing what is happening now.
