The novel inelastic collision properties of two-soliton interaction for an n-component coupled higher order nonlinear Schrödinger equation are studied. Some interesting features of three soliton interactions, related to the integrability of the n-component coupled higher order nonlinear Schrödinger equation are also discussed.
