Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

I'm sorry my American friends, but your patent office is fcuked up.

No, Thom. Fcuked up would be an improvement. There isn't a foul enough series of words that is sufficient to describe the USPTO. Because of this, I find that I almost always tend to side with the defendant/respondent in patent cases, particularly those involving software.

So while I support Apple in the Nokia/Apple case (since Nokia initiated the action there), in this case, I'm fully behind HTC.
