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."

There are patent trolls because there's money to be made in it


There is money to be made in it, because software patents are ridiculous. Its very difficult to determine during design, implementation, testing or release of a product's life cycle how many hundreds of patents a piece of software may violate. So these trolls can hide under their bridges and wait for their patent to be violated and jump out and demand money. Trolls are not a good thing. If you have a system that can be exploited by trolls, it is ipso facto a bad system.
