HTC is making the claim in a court in the UK that it does not infringe upon any of Apple’s patents in an ongoing case revolving around smartphones, and is claiming that Apple has patented “extremely simple implementations of commonly known techniques”, which is presumably meant to imply that the patents are invalid. If HTC succeeds with its argument, it will likely put much of Apple’s case in jeopardy, though have all four patents invalidated would be highly unlikely.
