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."

Notice you don’t get innovations coming from China, South Korea, etc.


That's a bold and fairly rascist, xenophobic assertion. Care to back it up or do you just want to leave it hanging out there?

Sadly the mode of operation in China at least is to look at US patents as a source of what to blatantly copy, not what to respect.

bnoisen,

"Sadly the mode of operation in China at least is to look at US patents as a source of what to blatantly copy, not what to respect."

Well, looking at it historically, wasn't this the original point of patents?

In exchange for granting a temporary private monopoly, the public would benefit by receiving the technical knowledge required to implement it?

Unfortunately today's software patents are useless to software developers. I'd go so far as to say the deliberate obfuscation by lawyers makes them completely worthless in terms of technical value.
