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.

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.
Could it be Saab 37 Viggen? And there are plenty of license built American planes in Europa like the F-16 for the original NATO partners where assembled in the Netherlands, most of Finlands F-18 are assembled in Finland to name a few examples.

Now days the customer are pretty strong, do to harder competition on the market and they demand more tech transfers and that majority of the fleet is assembled locally.

I'm not going to say, other than that the aircraft design was distinctly European, with no US-made components (especially software). The OEM had to go to an alternate source for a couple of replacement parts (such as the GPS I believe) in order to meet the customer's no-US-components requirement.

In other words your blowing smoke out your ass as usual, no surprise there. I get the feeling that in this case what you are thinking about has nothing to do with "patents" in the first place, but I guess never let facts get in the way of your ideology right?
