Multi-touch Lawsuit Showdown

Sooooo… lemme get this straight:

Apple sues HTC.

Elan Microelectronics sues Apple.

TEDsters will recognize the multi-touch concept from the introduction by Jeff Han at TED 2006 (without seeing code or chipsets) or from the Microsoft Surface — except on a larger scale. So why aren’t these two jumping into the multi-touch lawsuit roulette?

Someone, please enlighten me… I’m curious as to the differences between the handheld multi-touch and the large-screen multi-touch.
