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.

no real winners

In these types of scenario we see that the the only real winners are the lawyers. The consumer is going to be the looser in the long run and all these disputes really just disrupt innovation.

Its a sad time for the consumer and a great time for lawyers.
