    The news:
    Apple is suing HTC.
    They claim that HTC components in many smart phones violate Apples's patents.

    My opinion:
    Apple is enforcing their draconian business model on the marketplace.
    They're trying to stifle innovation among their competitors which is one of the ways they can continue to dominate the industry.
    They keep applications off their marketplace that might do something better than Apple's own or preferred partner's application.
    And now they are trying to lay claim that pretty much any way one interacts with a touch screen and an OS is their intellectual property.

    Or don't help with support, like with After Effects. I am continuously encouraged to use Motion instead of After Effects because it works better with our Macs....

    No thanks, I'll stick to the better software.

    Will Apple sue me for touching myself if I make money off it?

    Tell that to the woman at the Yellow Rose bar, before asking her if you can buy her a beer.
