[BBC] Apple hits Samsung in court again - Page 5

post #41 of 59
Honestly don't know why Apple is bothering with tablets. Android tablets haven't made a dent in Ipad market share.They can't sue over cell phones anymore since they've already been surpassed in almost every way.

I believe, from what I understand about them (which might not be all-inclusive), that the patents apple was granted regarding this were too broad. However, I also believe that they'll be able to defend them as being valid fairly easily, and unfortunately will seal the deal against Samsung.

This all points back to the patent system being broken, and has virtually nothing to do with the true defense of intellectual property.

ugh! patent wars never turn out fair for end consumers.... I personaly hope apple can not prove the validity of it's claims on their respective patents...

down with big-buisness and big brother apple and their assimilation of technology and calling it their own, making it virtualy impossible for any other manufacturer to make a few dollars to help bolster this stagnant economy...

Australia is probably the most computer illiterate country on earth, just look at their Internet policies to understand that one.

3G is an IEEE standard pertaining to network speed. It's absurd because there are many ways to qualify for 3G, and many different types of phone networks using 3G phones. If Apple wanted to have any real credibility in this lawsuit they'd sue every phone company around the world claiming that they used "3G"

I think you misunderstood. Samsung was trying to use the fact that Apple never got licensing for 3G protocols as a sort of defense. Apple's claims relate to design and functionality, nothing to do with 3G.

IP protection is the a firm cornerstone in a free market. Patents in the long run help drive innovation.

Samsung argued that Apple's claims are invalid due to previously registered patents relating to design elements and functionality.
...
But Apple argue that its own product's design is far superior to those which came before the iPad and iPhone, and so therefore its patents should not be invalidated.
Wow you can't make this stuff up...

Seriously the whole patent system should just be thrown out the window at this point. First of all it does not do what it was first meant to do, and second of all a system like that is no longer needed. Technology is moving FAR FAR faster than when the system was put into place. At this point, it only hold back innovation (REAL innovation, not Apple "innovation"). Back then, technological advancements were much slower and it was put into place so that when someone invented something usefull, people couldn't just copy it. That way people had an incentive to invent things, knowing that they could profit on it without fear of their profits stolen by others. Technology wasn't moving as fast as it is now, so it would run its usefull life. At this point, though, technology is moving so fast that by the time the patent runs out, we are already multiple generations ahead and the patent was only used for a fraction of the time it was granted. Not to mention the most used patents have nothing to do with technology, and the most usefull patents usually go unlicensed (see Apple's history with GSM, wi-fi). So now it only ends up holding back technology. There really is no point to the patent system anymore.

I stopped reading after this. So if I create a superior tablet to the iPad and patent the design and such..I can sue Apple for copying it?
