Apple's already trying to get Samsung products yanked off shelves for infringing upon its right to manufacture black rectangles—and now they're going after HTC for the same thing. For the second time.

Cupertino's latest attempt to derail HTC's gadget game is launched before the last complaint to the US International Trade Commission has even been heard. Grievances on grievances on grievances, baby! HTC, of course, has its own outstanding complaint against Apple pending review by the ITC. So basically, we're very close to the point at which every smartphone and tablet manufacturer will be suing every other smartphone and tablet manufacturer. [SF Gate via Engadget]
