“Quantum Research Group Ltd., a developer of capacitive sensors for user interfaces, has denied it is preparing a legal suit against Apple regarding Apple’s iPhone,” Peter Clarke reports for EE Times.
Quantum said in a statement:
Quantum has no knowledge of any infringement by Apple of Quantum’s patents in regard to the iPhone or any other product other than those products alleged to be infringing in our 2005 lawsuit against Apple and Cypress Semiconductor, specifically the Powerbook trackpad, Mighty Mouse, and iPod Nano scroll wheel.
Until the iPhone product is made available for public sale, we have to make the operating assumption that no Quantum patents have been violated.

Sounds like they got a call from Apple’s legal team.
