Apple gets multi-touch patent

The patent was officially awarded on Jan. 20. Tim Cook, Apple COO, says the company will not tolerate its intellectual property being “ripped off.”
Some people are worried about the effects this could have on the new Palm Pre, which was on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in early January. For example, this blogger from InformationWeek.com says there were very obvious similarities between the iPhone and the Pre.
Palm responded to the rumors, saying that the company has its own patents that cover what the Pre can do and its foundation.
