Apple Sues HTC for Patent Infringement

The bigger you are, the bigger the bullseye is. Apple has made its move on HTC, filing a suit against the Taiwanese company for infringing 20 patents "related to the iPhone's user interface, underlyiing architecture, and hardware." Regardless of whether HTC has been in the smartphone market before Apple came in, or whether Apple does have a solid case, the question is - will such lawsuits do any good for the consumer?

Engadget - Looks like Apple's going on the warpath, kids. Just a few months after Cupertino got into it with Nokia over phone patents, Apple's filed suit against HTC, alleging that the company is infringing 20 patents "related to the iPhone's user interface, underlying architecture, and hardware." Steve, you have something to say?
