Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

Like google, Apple are especially dangerous because they want to control everything, which is the most basic definition of a dictatorship.

I repeat - if you don't like their products don't buy them and if you don't like the software system they use on their platforms then don't code for them. In no market segment is Apple a monopoly so there is always an alternative. They control much of their technology to a greater degree than many competitors but that's the basis on which they make products (that happen to be selling like hot cakes). Other (less successful) companies have alternative strategies and alternative products - if you don't like Apple's then choose one of the alternatives and stop the hysterical whining - its demeaning.

Its like going ape shit because some band makes music you don't like - just don't listen to it. The fact that the band you don't like is actually insanely popular is probably irritating but it doesn't make them evil or (what a ridiculous description) "dangerous"
