Legal If you can't compete, litigate. Not entirely unsurprisingly, the US ITC has sided with a US company against a Taiwanese competitor - the US International Trade Commission judge has ruled that out of ten patents Apple brought into its suit against HTC, the Taiwanese smartphone pioneer is infringing upon two. The ruling has to be reviewed by a panel of six, but if they agree, then some HTC devices may be banned from the US market - unless HTC and Apple can come to a settlement. We also know which two patents - and yes, they're software patents, of course.

"can we get "-1 OMFG, what stupidity" tagging of some comments? there is simply no way to tag OP comment and compliment it with full glory of its nonsense


It would appear that you just did.

However that sets a really bad precedent. As stupid as that comment might be lets err on the side of restrain shall we...

lol, agree and i'm somehow sorry, but i simply couldn't resist.

if you read that same user on every patent topic, it only shows the need that keyboard, internet and free thinking should be explicitly forbidden for some people like OP.
