Legal Apple sued Motorola back. Who wants a Pop-Tart? Seriously, why don't they sell Pop-Tarts in The Netherlands? Why do I have to jump through so many hoops just to get Pop-Tarts? Or root beer for that matter? I mean, come on.

Does Apple really own a patent for multitouch screen?

Yes, one of them. However I am quite sure there exists lots of prior art, well enough to invalidate that patent if it were ever taken to court. Thus it's in Apple's interests to threaten others with a large bunch of patents at once so as to get a settlement before the matter is taken to courts, otherwise they'd be in a high risk of losing several of their patents.
