Apple filed lawsuit on HTC for infringing their 20 patents in their mobiles.
20 patents?? that's heavy and how could a big manufacturer like HTC could forget those patent rights???According tothis detail report in engadget.com Its clear that both companies had infringed their IPs and are extensively using them when needed and bashing them when required, Are they playing or Its just good business?? I think they do this in their conscience and create a recipe to others for marketing!!
