ridiculous patents strike again. Dates back to mid 90's patents, but it "can" affect any electronic device on the planet.

Quote:
Namely HTC was found guilty of infringing on:
U.S. Patent No. 5,946,647: "A system and method causes a computer to detect and perform actions on structures identified in computer data."
U.S. Patent No. 6,343,263: "A data transmission system having a real-time data engine for processing isochronous streams of data includes an interface device that provides a physical and logical connection of a computer to any one or more of a variety of different types of data networks."
Apple isn't wanting a settlement, they want to ban ALL htc, Motorola, and Samsung devices who use Android.

Yet Apple stole Android's method of notification.
