Picture of the week: patent war map
He gossip theme Of the week in the world of consumer electronics has been and will be for a while, the lawsuit that Apple has filed against HTC for infringing some 20 patents on the apple brand. Recall that Apple has in turn another lawsuit from Nokia also for the same, so it seems a game of cat and mouse.
The fact is that taking a look at the patents that Apple claims from HTC and what Google has commented, Android seems to be the center of all the controversy. The search engine company itself has come out in defense of its operating system and has said that it will defend those who have helped it develop Android, and there HTC has had a lot to do with it.
Is a war looming between two of the greats? Who has to win in a Google-Apple battle? Place your bets, gentlemen.
