HTC Sues Apple With Google Patents

HTC Sues Apple
HTC is the first Android device make Apple sued in it's Droid Wars series and currently in the courts. HTC does not have a large enough patent portpolio to talk Apple in to a de. If HTC loses to Apple here, it could set a precedence for Apple to after other Android device  makers.
So it seems that HTC got nine patents from Google Patents which Google itself obtained earlier from Palm Inc., Motorola Inc. and Openwave Systems Inc. So using four of those patents (Motorola), HTC sued Apple today in federal court in Delaware, claiming infringement.
HTC also amended a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, alleging infringement of three patents first issued to Openwave and two others originally owned by Palm.
