Moto started it in this case.

The whole patent war needs to stop.

Let's just keep in mind that Apple isn't the only major brand slinging around subpoenas here. I think a lot of you all are forgetting that. I said in this thread earlier, Moto sued Apple FIRST. You guys have selective reading or you just flat out think it's okay for Apple to be sued and not the other way around.
No. Just no. Nokia sued Apple for using their technology that they developed that made cell phones what they are today. It is a specific technology that they developed and Apple used in their iPhones and refused to license it. Apple tried to dodge licensing their tech, and that is why they are the "bad guy" in my eyes in this case, even though they are the ones getting sued.

Motorola sued Apple for similar claims. Look at my post a page back.

Apple sues over ridiculous things. Im not saying that they have zero valid patents (Im sure they must have some in their enormous patent portfolio), but some of their patents are absurd (also not saying they are the only ones to do this). They patent things that should not be patentable and sue others, such as the touch screen interface.

Imagine a video game developer patenting using WASD to move, or using a mouse to look around. That is what Apple does. The specific technology of the touchscreen should be patentable, but not way the touchscreen is used.

Imagine a video game developer patenting a game engine that they developed and licensing it to others. This is legitimate. They developed the game engine and deserve control over it. That would be like the Nokia and Motorola tech mentioned earlier that Apple uses in their devices.

Nobody liked Motorola anyway.

However suing for unlicensed use of technology is MUCH less contemptible than suing over general concepts and designs. Its still wrong, but at least Motorola has a legitimate claim. They did basically invent the cell phone. Their case isn't a "oh it looks vaguely like our device so we're going to sue" thing, and at the time Apple was already suing HTC, and involved in a battle with Nokia, so if anything it was probably pre-emptive.

Apple's lawsuit over JAY-tech is entirely justified, because that thing looks exactly like a freaking iPad. The Xoom however isn't even close.


But thats not what people are mad about. I'd bet that the majority of smartphone owners on this forum have devices made by HTC or Samsung, and neither company has sued Apple.

These threads depress me.
Can people please stop starting them? They only seem to bring out the worst in OCN members.

Just pointing out, that both HTC and Samsung have sued Apple.

HTC
Samsung

I do own an HTC phone, but really I would still be saying these comments regardless of the phone that I owned.
