Apple has sued HTC, accusing the rival smartphone maker of violating patents related to the popular iPhone. According to an intellectual property expert, one of the potential outcomes of this case is that the courts could rule that existing handsets (such as the Nexus One, Hero, Droid etc) must be remotely downgraded to remove the disputed functionality.
Such a similar case has happened before, where TiVo and EchoStar had a dispute, which resulted in EchoStar having to arrange for a remote software change on all affected machines, stripping them of existing features. Of course, if HTC were to be forced to remotely remove any juicy features of existing phones, that will make anger to rise from existing users. Lets sit back relax and expect good.
