Apple vs. Palm: Round 2
“We like competition, as long as they don’t rip off our IP, and if they do, we’re going to go after anybody that does….We will not stand for having our IP ripped off and we’ll use whatever weapons we have at our disposal [to make sure that doesn't happen]. I don’t know that I can be more clear than that.”
-Apple COO Tim Cook
“Palm has a long history of innovation that is reflected in our products and robust patent portfolio, and we have long been recognized for our fundamental patents in the mobile space… If faced with legal action, we are confident that we have the tools necessary to defend ourselves.”
-Palm spokesperson Lynn Fox
What? Apple claiming something for themselves and Palm insisting on its top dog status? Has anything really changed?
