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.

"Samsung has not yet been involved in any patent suits"
Well, according to The Guardian smartphones patent wars diagram
http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/2010/nov/01/smartphone-pa...
Samsung has already stepped on the battle ring.


I see Apple being sued 8 times to their own counter sue of 3 times.

Yes. Apple is certainly the aggressor. They are actually suing only large corporations. (HTC, NOKIA and MOTOROLA)

They are counter suing in two of those cases (MOTO, NOKIA) and suing MOTO.
