Legal Nokia has gotten an injunction against HTC in Germany over a patent on a power-saving feature in Qualcomm chips (?!). Nokia's response illustrates why the company started its recent patent offensive: "Nokia is pleased with this decision, which confirms the quality of Nokia's patent portfolio." If nobody buys your phones and your business is failing spectacularly, you have to promote something else of value to paint yourself as an interesting acquisition target. Patents it is, then. If you can't compete, litigate. Update: HTC's statement is pretty damning.

It's my opinion we can make our own opinions and should be allowed to debate news facts with an open mind and not dogma.

Of course. That's exactly what everybody is doing here. All the time.

Your opinion is presented as fact

You only read it as such. I'm not going to add "in my opinion" or "I think" to every statement I make. People here are smart enough to understand this - and so are you.

and each time someone disputes this it is waved off in an unpleasant manner.

We're all adults here. A few harsh and direct words never killed anyone. If it did, I'd be chopped to pieces, burnt, and buried six times over.

In the past week alone.
