Yesterday, HTC’s released a press release regarding Apple’s patent lawsuit.
Peter Chou, CEO of HTC:
HTC disagrees with Apple’s actions and will fully defend itself. HTC strongly advocates intellectual property protection and will continue to respect other innovators and their technologies as we have always done, but we will continue to embrace competition through our own innovation as a healthy way for consumers to get the best mobile experience possible.
The press release is less of a disagreement and more about HTC’s history in the industry. I disagree with Apple’s decision to sue HTC as well, but unless HTC has any actual real world argument against these patents it’ll boil down to a back and forth of nuh-huh and yuh-huh‘s.
