Filing and facing lawsuits in all directions, Apple has once again raised eyebrows in the mobile industry, and filed a lawsuit against HTC, accusing it of infringing 20 hardware and software patents (specifically user interface processes) related to the iPhone. The phones in question are the Google-powered Android touchscreen phones of HTC, but Google is not named in the lawsuit, which was filed both at the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. District Court in Delaware on Tuesday. The lawsuit seeks to prohibit HTC from selling, marketing or distributing infringing products in the United States, and could potentially cost HTC several 100 million dollars in fines and lost sales.
