Why Apple will strike down upon HTC with a vengeance in the UK

HTC has taken “its patent spat with Apple global and filed a lawsuit against Apple on July 29, 2011 in London with the High Court of England and Wales,” Florian Mueller reports for FOSS Patents.

“At this stage, no information on the scope of the lawsuit is available. It was filed by HTC Europe Co., HTC’s European subsidiary,” Mueller reports. “It could be an infringement lawsuit or a declaratory judgment action against some of Apple’s UK patents. One way or the other, this is the first European lawsuit between the two litigants to become known.”

Mueller writes, “It’s obvious that Apple will strike down upon HTC with a vengeance in the UK and possibly several other countries. Apple already has a lot of experience with intercontinental patent litigation… By filing a lawsuit in Europe, HTC shows its determination to keep fighting. That determination is beyond doubt. But no matter in how many countries HTC may file lawsuits against Apple, it won’t be able to change anything about Apple’s objectives.”

  1. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.”
