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.

Haha look at this one:

"The '599 Patent, entitled "Object-Oriented Graphic System," was duly and legally issued on October 3, 1995 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. A copy of the '599 Patent is attached hereto as Exhibit I."

Ha, Apple patented the object-oriented graphical operating system.


Surely the Xerox Star using smalltalk had an object-oriented graphical OS back in the late 70's? What's even funnier in a way is that you could argue that Nextstep is prior art against that patent (patent was lodged by Apple while Next still existed)
