Apple isn't protecting their patents. If you haven't noticed, non of their products look like the patent.

The button on the iPad alone is enough to throw out the case at it does not follow the design.

Since non of their products resemble this patent, as the button alone is enough to claim a difference, then we know Apple is not protecting their assets, but to protect themselves for market dominance. Why else patent a general "slate" design that is not one of their retailed products? I can already point out 3 differences...

The suits are the same because it's over infringed PATENTS. A patent is a patent is a patent. It doesn't matter if you agree with it, disagree with it, love it or hate it. Apple is taking these other companies to court over patent disputes, just like Moto and Samsung are taking Apple to court over patent disputes. I even agree that it's a relatively broad patent that Apple was awarded!

If you personally don't like the patent, that's all fine and dandy. But that doesn't magically invalidate it, nor does it somehow mean Apple shouldn't be allowed to defend it. It's still a patent that Apple was awarded. A patent on design is no less a patent on something more technical.

I'll repeat this part once more too, since everyone is so keen on calling me a fanboy. I could care less who wins in these cases. Whether it's Samsung, Moto, or Apple. All I've been trying to get at is Apple deserves the right to defend it's intellectual property using the same means as everyone else. I'm not really railing against any one company here. Just the mindless comments by some of the members. Hopefully my point is clear on that.

Finally, to address the bit about Apple trying to remove Samsung from the market. I genuinely don't think that is the case. If it was, Apple would not have tried to settle with Samsung PRIOR to suing them. It just doesn't make sense.
And I have posted arguments against this plenty of times before as well, which you have never addressed.

The patent system is broken. We all know this. It does not make it okay for Apple to abuse it to get ahead of the competition.

So because the patent was awarded that is your main argument for samsung to grab their ankles?

So I guess we should do away with the supreme court because well those people are already found guilty.
