HTC, makers of phones with the Android OS, have decided Apple also infringes on its patents.
A few short weeks ago HTC signed a pact with Microsoft which included patent licensing for an undisclosed sum. This has given HTC some patent protection and following that it seems HTC has found Apple is infringing on five of its patents.
HTC want the immediate halting of sales of iPhone, iPad and iPod devices.
Apple have in the recent passed been sued by Nokia for infringing on its patents and Apple countersued, it seems we are hearing the same story again with HTC being sued and then countersuing.
Hopefully this will not impact product schedules too much but certainly the lawyers of either company are going to be happy.
