The more it costs others to license their products the more they cost and the less they are willing to continually research and develop because they have to "Pay the apple tax" to do so. Competition is best and when Apple secures these things it LOOKS good for Apple, but it is not something that produces a positive effect for consumers.
    Again, this patent isn't really going to affect anybody. It applies only to multi-finger touches controlling a window within the overall browser window without affecting the zoom or position of the overall browser window.
