Motorola sued by Apple over use of multitouch in Android phones

Back in 2009, Apple CFO Tim Cook warned the competition about using Apple patents without permission. Cook said, "We like competition as long as they don't rip off our IP. And if they do, we will go after anyone who does." The suit, Apple vs. Motorola and Motorola Mobility Inc. was filed in Wisconsin Western District Court.
You might recall that earlier this month, we reported that Motorola Mobility was suing Apple for infringing on 18 of the former's patents. And the game goes on and on with only the lawyers getting anywhere.
thats a easy apple did not invent multitouch

Yeah apple invented the wheel an the magic too, don't ya know their devices use their silver magic to work? C'mon Motorola was making phones way before apple decided to make them, don't ya know they created most things phones use up yo today? And smartphones? Hahaha not even that belongs to them, look for SE p800 and tell me what you see, th only thing they did was refresh the way phones look, and the webkit. The only thing they patented was dumb device to make its users believe everything they are told.

LOL This is precious. Motorola is the only one to actually have grounds for sewing. The patent for Multi Touch should have been denied seeing as how it was a concept long before the iPhone. And I'm pretty sure the patent only covers the specifications for the iPhone and not a universal system for all phones.

maybe they might have the grounds for the specific gestures that uses multi touch but i dont see how they can even get a patent for something that is basically just a characteristic for what a capacitive screen can recognize. Which is more than one input at a time
