I love this. Apple was trying to flaunt their control over multitouch to prevent guys like Palm and Microsoft utilizing the technology while they themselves were infringing!

Though Apple, with a cash reserve near $23 billion, is more likely to write a check and put this behind them than see their products taken off the shelves.
Odd assumption, many said this about the gaming companies and Immersion and yet Sony held out through the PS3 before they finally cracked and appropriately licensed the technology, instead taking dings constantly for their violation.

Patents, Trademarks, Copyright all things that gotta get abused during these tough times, you expect them to live on at least 100k a year psh...

I think most of these companies will fail to live up to monster cable anyway, when you go out suing a mini-golf park and a transmission company for use of the name monster you've pretty much hit absolute rock bottom. Although the total list of those sued by the Bermuda Holdings company based Monster Cable is quite high.

That would certainly explain why the iPhone is often referred to as the Jesus phone.
