Exactly. Ford radically changed the car market a century ago with the Model T, but they did not get a patent for the automobile, nor did they deserve one.

I've seen you post this in at least 3 other threads. Why not just put a link in your sig and save yourself the time that could otherwise be used for non-trolling purposes?

If you believe that what you learned in high school was all you need to know to understand case law and IP protection well enough to discuss it intelligently, it is IMO laughable.

Well the thing is the purpose of law is supposed to serve the people. You don't need a law degree to see that the patent system is completely messed up, just the ability to think rationally. Whether you understand all the laws which stem from a corrupt system is irrelevent. At least in discussion pertaining to those points. People aren't saying that they know all the laws, just that the situation is flawed when you take a step back from the law book and look at the situation rationally.

It's enough to discuss the ridiculous iPad vs. Galaxy Tab case...

This isn't a serious discussion about law we're having here. It's patent wars in the most basic concept. Apple is trying to ban the Galaxy because it "looks like" an iPad. If pointing out that the internal hardware and software is COMPLETELY different from the iPad isn't enough "intelligence" to debunk the patent's legitimacy, then I'm sorry for those who feel so. Can you provide evidence of other cases successful in banning competition solely over the similar physical appearance of the product?

You don't even know the factors that go into a trade dress verdict, let alone one single successful verdict, and you feel like you can discuss it with full knowledge and veracity.

There's one for you.

Hey try reading! What a surprise.... A design patent protects only the ornamental appearance of an article, and not its structure or utilitarian features.

So, only an idiot would think you need to turn a Galaxy Pad on, or that the insides are different and that means "victory for Samsung". Is that fair to say?

But hey feel free to "debunk" the people who actually know something about the law.

Actually Samsung made all the important parts of the iPhone. Perhaps Apple should have invested in internal silicon fabrication like Intel instead of spending it all on marketing. Apple did invest in Sharp recently.
