HTC Countersues Apple With Patents Purchased From HP  July 6, 2010 – 11:33 am

HTC has filed two counterclaims against Apple in the Southern District of Florida this week, using two patents that were purchased from HP as its weapon against the Cupertino company.

Both patents were acquired back in December 2011. The first covers “installation of network services in an embedded network server, ” which, according to HTC, is used by Apple in almost all of its personal computers, smartphones, and “mobile computing devices, ” which include the iPad and iPod touch.

The second patent covers a “method and system for central management of a computer network, ” which Apple allegedly infringes with its “Apple Remote Desktop, Apple Profile Manager, and/or products and services that use Apple Remote Desktop and Apple Profile Manager.”

According to intellectual property analyst Florian Mueller, who runs FOSS Patents, this is HTC’s attempt to “deny-everything-and-throw-in-the-kitchen-sink.” He believes the Taiwanese company has been seeking opportunities to purchase patents solely for the purpose of countersuits against Apple.

But its ploy isn’t always successful. Mueller reports that HTC was recently dealt a blow by the International Trade Commission, which threw out five of the patents the company had acquired from Google. According to public documents related to the agreement, it appeared HTC had loaned the patents from Google, rather than purchased them.

The nuclear puzzle

Diplomatic sources in Tehran say that despite all the protestations, Iran's intentions remain unclear. There are two widely held and opposing views.
The first argues that Iran is cynically stringing out the negotiations to extract more economic concessions from the US and the EU that it desperately needs to support its sick economy. At the right point it will compromise.
The second is that Tehran is secretly working on a weapons acquisition program but won't declare its intentions until it has assembled the necessary technology and know-how. According to this theory, Iran would rely on the backing of Russia and China to head off any retaliatory action by the EU and US.
