Legal "In a scene straight out of Bizarro World, Apple's lawyers are crying foul about Samsung and recent Google acquisitions Motorola's allegedly 'anticompetitive' use of patents. Yes, this is the same Apple that has initiated a patent war with these smartphone rivals. And it's the same rival that has tried to remove competing products from the market, rather than agree to negotiate a licensing fee. And it's the same company that patented multi-touch gestures 26 years after they were invented at a research university. And it's the same company that allegedly doctored evidence in European courts to support its lawsuits against Android. Yet in Apple's rose-colored glasses it is Samsung and Motorola who are bullies. Apparently Apple is irate about these companies' countersuits, which rely largely on patents covering wireless communications."

Apple is only complaining about the FRAND patents not about all the patents, ...


And you are still failing to address why they are facing a countersuit with those patents being asserted against them.

What did they do that got their adversaries to counter-attack them this way? And once you address that, then try explaining why it was OK for them to do it, but not fair to be hit back in a similar way after they did it.
