A few months ago, Apple filed a lawsuit against HTC for violation of patents, mainly connected to Android. On response Google gave HTC three of their patents (for free) , which the Taiwanese company used in it’s defense against Apple. Now, the american company has also supported HTC with a speech in front of the US trade commission. In the speech, they’ve said, that Apple has already filed lawsuits against Samsung and Motorola and if they ban HTC devices running Android from the market, this will create a great opportunity for Apple to become the only mobile platform on the US market, which will also be bad for the end-users. The commission should announce their decision by 06.12. B. A.
