Legal Tell 'm like it is, HTC. "HTC is disappointed at Apple's constant attempts at litigations instead of competing fairly in the market," said HTC general counsel Grace Lei in a statement, "HTC strongly denies all infringement claims raised by Apple in the past and present and reiterates our determination and commitment to protect our intellectual property rights."

Misleading argument from HTC

The title implies that Apple is choosing to litigate rather than compete fairly. Apple is competing fairly... the issue at hand is whether HTC is competing fairly.... hence the lawsuit.

Personally, I think there is justification for it, as HTC among others created a product very similar to Apple's. If HTC isn't concerned because they feel they didn't copy then why not let it just play out in court?

The comment does nothing more than play into the idea perpetuated by sites like this one that suggests patents ought not be protected.
