HTC Sues Apple and Seeks to Ban Sale of Apple Products in the US?!

In a strange turn of events, HTC has sued Apple for patent infringement. They claim Apple is infringing on several patents that are used in iPods, iPhone, iPads, and Apple computers. Pretty weird right? The new lawsuit comes as a response to several Apple has filed against HTC over the past two years, and is part of a recent number of lawsuits making headlines in the smartphone industry. 

The funny thing is Apple seeks to ban the sale of Apple products in the entire United States. What would be funny is if what if HTC did actually win the case and Apple had to stop selling its products. Pretty weird/funny right?

I think it is. I think that if HTC actually won, Apple will get a taste of their own medicine. It'd be pretty funny too, but Apple fanboys, on the other hand, won't be amused. 

Let us know what you think.

  1. I would not be happy if Apple lost the right to sell their products in the United States. I would be thrilled beyond all realms. I do want Apple to stay around as competition and choice, BUT I want them to stop suing everyone who walks the earth because they feel that it's the only way for them to win. Just because you make a chair does not mean that you invented the chair and that no one else can make a chair afterwords. The Patent war is getting nuts... We need reform in the worst possible way.

  2. Notice how HTC wants Apple products banned....I feel thats a lil show of support for Samsung.

    United we stand!!!!!

  3. I think this is pretty funny. I'd be so amused if this actually passed. I wonder what the Apple fanboys will say...

  4. If sales of Apple products are banned even for a day, it'll cause a revolution...and it won't look good...

  5. Apple will fall!...I hope
