Legal Apple has responded to the recent patent threats again iOS application developers by Lodsys. Bruce Sewell, Apple's senior vice president and general counsel, sent a letter to Lodsys CEO Mark Small detailing why the threats are baseless. Apple claims they have a license to the patents in question, and that the iOS application developers are mere customers - not distributors.

Is there a requirement of notability, or can you patent an iPod Touch's rounded corners ?)


Yes you can (I think they did), It's called a design patent. Another Idiocy as design is pretty much covered by copyright...
