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."

Finally, do you dispute that there are inventions that were incredibly difficult to think of but the actual implementation is quite straightforward?

There might be but I can't think of any. I think we should just keep in mind why patents were introduced and make sure that they can't be abused to fight competitors.
What if Apple introduces an incredibly difficult to think of feature in their phones. Apples competitors see the result of the feature and copy it(because it is easy to duplicate). You think Apple should be able to get a patent on the feature?
