Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

How is this fair?

Company invents technology essential to mobile phone industry ... has to share it with everyone.

Apple invents a rectangle ... gets to sue everyone over it.
