appleWie Apple soeben per Pressemitteilung bekannt gegeben hat, hat das Unternehmen aus Cupertino eine Klage gegen HTC eingereicht, das es 20 iPhone Patente, die die Benutzeroberfläche, die Software-Architektur und die Hardware betreffen, durch den Konkurrenten verletzt sieht.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs wird in der Pressemitteilung wie folgt zitiert: „Wir können dasitzen und zugucken, wie unsere Konkurrenten unsere patentierten Erfinden stehlen oder wir können etwas dagegen tun. Wir haben uns dazu entschlossen, etwas zu unternehmen. Wir halten  den Wettbewerb für gesund, unsere Mitstreiter sollten jedoch ihre eigenen Technologien entwickeln und diese nicht stehlen.“

“We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.”

Zudem ist in der Mitteilung zu lesen, dass Apple den Mobilfunkmarkt im Jahr 2007 mit dem iPhone revolutioniert hat, ein Jahr später folgte der grandiose App Store, der mittlerweile über 150.000 Apps in mehr als 90 Ländern bereit hält. Über 40 Millionen iPhones wurde bisher weltweit verkauft.
