Legal Oh it's on. It's on. They just messed with the wrong... Euh, companies. It seems like both Samsung and HTC are gearing up for war, and in doing so, have pretty much made a deal with what could turn out to be the devil. They've both partnered with Intellectual Ventures, a company which hoards patents only to license them to others - however, the company has no history of litigation.

what?

How can others sue for patent infringement on patents they don't own?

I have no idea, but perhaps they sell a patent to a partner and get a percentage of the money earned through lawsuits?
