PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, the new HTC phones are facing delays in the US, and they now ship with a slightly modified US-specific Android build which removes data tapping and sports an altered app associations screen to avoid Apple's patents. This is step one. Step two is companies avoiding the litigious and anti-consumer messes that are the US and German markets altogether. Clearly, IP laws are working to the benefit of the consumer and the market as a whole. Great work guys.

So you think it a simple matter to figure what your widget might have infringed given the state of patent and copyright law.

It's protection racket in which you have to assume every Corp gets it's cut, with or without any merit whatsoever, and that only if the 'Law' is not being used to keep your widget out of the market altogether.
