Legal Oh it's on. It's on. They just messed with the wrong... Euh, companies. It seems like both Samsung and HTC are gearing up for war, and in doing so, have pretty much made a deal with what could turn out to be the devil. They've both partnered with Intellectual Ventures, a company which hoards patents only to license them to others - however, the company has no history of litigation.

It's MAD I tell you (in the USA only)

So they've taken their 40 pieces of Silver and got into bed with a troll.

Their next step will be to sue every other mobile phone maker as well as more than a few PC makers just bo be sure.
Their targets will (as has been seen already) retaliate with their own lawsuits.
The end result will be MAD (Mutually assured destruction). The ONLY winners will be the myriad of lawyers scrambling to get on this particular gravy train.
The sure fire losers will be us poor consumers.

The sooner the USSC declares them null & void the better but there are far too many lawyers with their snouts in the trough. Remember, who makes the laws? What percentage of the lawmakers are lawyers? You do the math.
