    Out of fairness and curiosity in regards to multi-touch, wasn't Apple the first to use it? Anyone have the historical facts on this?

    They were, but the patent is about includes touch in all ways :S
    Thats what makes it so extreme.
    What would it mean if others didn't fight this patent?

    If they came up with the concept they should be able to patent what they have created so far. That doesn't mean they should be able to patent new multi-touch implementations that are different from their own. One could argue that the first to use touchscreen on a phone (palm?) would be able to sue Apple for taking the tech to a phone.

    But if they sue for touchscreen technology, they'd sue RIM too. Sorta like a lose-lose situation with RIM here

    Side note:
    Palm was awesome.
    Had to add that in there
