Submission + - Apple Sues HTC for 20 Patent Violations in Phones (

eldavojohn writes: Taiwanese HTC is being sued by Apple for 20 patents regarding the many phones HTC manufactures. Jobs was quoted as saying, 'We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it. We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.' Apple has similar patent litigation with Nokia and may be trying to scare the rest of the industry into licensing patents similar to the Microsoft-Novell and Microsoft-Amazon deals regarding patents covering Linux functionality.
