HTC files Patent claim against Apple in UK

Just two weeks after Apple’s claim against HTC in the US was provisionally upheld by the ITC, HTC have now retaliated by filing a patent-violating lawsuit against the Apple with the High Court of Justice in London. If you want to learn more about the legal implications of a copyright violation, get some copywriting training online.

The exact details of the claim here in the UK are as yet unknown but certainly looks like a tit-for-tat exchange of claims.

It perhaps makes perfect sense that HTC would file here as the UK is the largest market for HTC in Europe.

One assumes that if HTC are successful here in the UK and Apple successful in the US, in respect of their individual claims, that the two sides would seek some mutual agreement to nullify the the effects on both side of the pond.

We’ll continue to watch this one with interest!
