HTC gets patent help from Google in Apple lawsuit

Posted on Thursday, September 8th 2011 at 12:20 p.m.

In the ridiculous world of wireless lawsuits, HTC has gotten a boost from Google in its legal battle against Apple.  Google transfered nine patents that it obtained from Palm, Motorola, and Openwave Systems to HTC on September 1st, and HTC is using those patents to sue Apple.  This is disappointing considering that HTC’s general counsel Grace Lei complained in July HTC is disappointed in Apple’s constant attempts at litigations instead of competing fairly in the market.”

Hopefully at some point the various wireless companies will call a truce instead of figuring out new ways to make their lawyers money.
