HTC sues Apple using nine patents received from Google
The suit alleges that Apple infringed on four of the patents that originally belonged to Motorola. Three other patents that HTC claims that Apple illegally used came from Openwave with the remaining two starting life at Palm. Apple has filed patent infringement suits against a number of Android handset makers including Samsung, HTC and Motorola. The ball is back in Apple's, ahem, court.
