Legal Finally - after a few weeks, HTC has actually officially issued a statement regarding the patent infringement lawsuit Apple has thrown towards the Taiwanese phone maker. As you probably already anticipated, HTC states it will fully defend itself against Apple. It's on, it's on.

Didn't stop them approving those patents though. I think, personally, that the USPTO has the philosophy of "approve everything, and if there's a problem spend buttloads of cash in court to straighten it out." They're lazy, simple as that.


I believe that is how they are financed. If they don't approve, they don't get the income.

Well they get paid even if they don't approve the patent application, but they receive much more if they approve from yearly fees.

I believe that they are, under staffed to handle the amount of patent applications they receive.
