HTC Hits Apple with Patent Counterclaim
HTC has filed claims against Apple in Florida that allege the iPhone maker is violating two patents that HTC acquired from HP. The first patent pertains to "installation of network services in an embedded network server" and the second pertains to "method and system for central management of a computer network." Between these two patents, HTC says a number of Apple devices violate its intellectual property, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac computers and certain software programs. The countersuit was filed in retaliation for a lawsuit from Apple accusing HTC os similar patent violations.
---"method and system for central management of a computer network."----
I love HTC, but I must maintain my opinion that any software action that crosses and connects standard use of computation, should remain standardized and not be contained. I cannot and will not agree with HTC or any other manufacturer's feelings that they try to sequester the basic essentials.
Stationary computation transitioning to Mobility should not require a re-write of these basic programs needed for computational use.
These litigation circus shows are growing tiresome and I don't really want to be hit up in financially compensating these companies for their court costs.
