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."

He's talking about a very specific set of patents, namely software patents and some hardware patents. Yes, most of us (I assume osnews attracts like-minded people) are against software patents, the reasons have been explained over and over. I just give you one reason (there are dozens) - software is a very very fast moving market. You can't sell software that is 2 or more years old. Most software companies expect AND get their ROI in the first year. Granting them monopolies over technology that becomes outdated so fast seriously hinders innovation. We like innovation (and the resulting consumer choice). If you don't you're probably mental. I believe people thought the same when moderating your comment.
