Legal And we have another interesting development in the ongoing and ever-expanding idiocy that is the War of the High-Fiving Lawyers Mobile Patent World War. Motorola, now a central player in this worldwide conflict that is hurting consumers' wallets and clogging legal systems all over the world, has come to HTC's rescue by seeking to invalidate the patents Apple sued HTC with earlier this year.

To be frank, I do believe it is done out of self-interest, as it helps strengthen their own case against Apple.

I do agree that "central player" is a bit misleading, but more in the sense that aside from their Apple lawsuit, Motorola are only the defendant in the cases Nokia, Microsoft and RIM started against them. See the "circle of insanity": http://news.designlanguage.com/post/1252039209

I didn't think it was pure altruism either ;) It's just nice that their interest aligns nicely with ours ;)
