Apple on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against HTC for infringing on twenty of Apple patents related to the iPhone’s user interface, underlying architecture and hardware. The company also said that it reinvented the mobile phone in 2007 with its “revolutionary iPhone”, a rather bold claim from a company that pioneered neither touch-screens nor mobile phones.

“We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it. We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive officer.

The lawsuit was filed concurrently with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and in U.S. District Court in Delaware.

Apple did not disclose exactly which patents have been infringed by HTC and also did not reveal its demands. As result, it is unclear whether Apple wants regulators to ban sales of HTC’s mobile phones in the U.S. or whether it has any complaints about user interfaces and/or developed by Microsoft Corp. or Google for mobile phones.

I'm not sure why they're going after HTC and Google. Motorola, RIM and Nokia are the big players in the industry. You're just shooting yourself in the foot. Google and Apple certainly seem to be butting heads as of late though:
