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."

Jennimc,

"There are patent trolls because there's money to be made in it. Where there is money to be made people will always find the lowest amount of work to make the maximum amount of money. This is true for any business."

At least this is true.


The problem with software patents is that software developers, in doing their daily jobs, will infringe numerous software patents inadvertently.

What is gained by having a patent system which prohibits competing implementations of similar/same algorithms? All developers put in the hard work required to implement the code, why is only one developer entitled to the benefits?
