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.

FYI, US exports, not imports food. You couldn't even look that one up on Wiki? All that will really happen in this deluded fantasy is Americans won't be able to purchase lead filled toys from China lol.


If the US continues with behavior about its alleged "IP" similar to the behaviour that Monsanto is infamous for, as Obama has promised it will do, then US won't export food for long.

US products are already very much "on the nose" internationally. I am aware of some major contracts for aircraft, for example, that have entirely been awarded on the criteria "as long as it doesn't contain an US-made parts".

As the US begins to insist more and more on being paid license fees, especially for obvious ideas such as Apple are pushing against HTC right now, than more and more no one (i) internationally will touch US-made products with a ten-foot barge pole.

"Not made in the US"
will become a major selling point.

Well regarding aircrafts its a completely different reason why they don't want US made parts and that's Weapons export licences (fighter and other military hardware and spear-parts). And that criteria limits their choice to Russian and Chinese and France aircrafts.

My example was for an aircraft design which was in fact of European origin. The non-European customers got to assemble most of the fleet in their own country. They chose it because the Americans are unbelieveably precious about their alleged IP, and that attitude flies in the face of the sovreignity of other nations.

As the Americans steadily become more and more precious about alleged IP, this type of thing will happen more and more often.
