Apple and Palm kicked a lot of dirt at each other last week -- acting Apple CEO Tim Cook flatly told analysts "We will not stand for people ripping off our IP" when asked about competition like the Palm Pre. However, looking at some of Palm's patents, we can pretty much say that Apple's got some 'splainin to do. This is an in-depth comparison.
...this isn't anywhere close to a full-blown patent analysis, and we're sure the attorneys and law students out there will be able to find angles and tactics we've missed. That said, we'll go on record: all we want is for both Apple and Palm to come to the table, hammer out a cross-licensing agreement like other companies in the wireless industry do all the time, and get back to work on innovative, exciting technologies and devices. The lawyers get paid that way too, you know.
