HTC has bought a number of patent from Google in a bid to strengthen its legal case against Apple. It’s amended its US International Trade Commission complaint, it’s amended a similar US legal case and has filed a new case as well.
In a blog post, intellectual property analyst Florian Mueller said “I’m sure Apple always knew that Google might give patents to embattled Android device makers. That didn’t prevent Apple from enforcing its rights in the first place. It won’t make Apple back down now.”
