Legal Tell 'm like it is, HTC. "HTC is disappointed at Apple's constant attempts at litigations instead of competing fairly in the market," said HTC general counsel Grace Lei in a statement, "HTC strongly denies all infringement claims raised by Apple in the past and present and reiterates our determination and commitment to protect our intellectual property rights."

Personally, I think there is justification for it, as HTC among others created a product very similar to Apple's.


I'd say since HTC was in the PDA arena for longer, it's Apple that created a product very similar to HTC's.

Apple's complaint basically targets Android, so no wonder... I can see why they started fighting Samsung, but HTC!?!?!?

That doesn't make sense. Just because Apple enters a market doesn't mean they are copying.

So when Apple moves inot an area to compete it is "entering a market." When others then move to compete with Apple, it is stealing.

Thank you for clearing that up.

They copied the idea of a phone.
They borrowed the notion of an aerial for communication.

Now do you notice how silly your argument looks?
