    Today HTC has filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission against Apple requesting to halt the importation and sale of the iPhone, iPad and iPhod here in the US.

    Apple made noise last month when it first filed papers against HTC suing for infringement of over 20 patents.

    You bum! You beat me to it! :) I hope that HTC kicks some Apple ass. It's about time someone punched the bully in the nose. Between HTC and Nokia having filed suit against Apple, Apple is going to have a whole lot of explaining, weaseling, palm greasing, etc... to do to try and get out of both of them unscathed.

    Hate to say it but HTC will get squrshed like Roy D. Mercer's son's pet hamster, Liberace. (Haven't heard that? - Google it, funny stuff!!)

    Lets not act like HTC is some mom and pops joint. HTC is a mega company as well. Now I am glad they are fighting back since apple started the whole thing.

    HTC is not as young as everyone thinks, they have backing too.

    HTC is no pushover. They are a multi-billion dollar operation. Sure Apple is about 10 times bigger but that doesn't mean their attorneys are 10 times better.

    Granted I only read the topic, but exactly did Apple do?

    The preview makes it sound like they're being sued for existing.

    The press release states its for 5 counts of Patent Infringement.

    What, exactly, those patents are isn't explained in the press release itself. I can't find the actual legal complaint, but I'm sure someone else will in due time
