[The Verge] Apple gets yet another, broader slide-to-unlock patent

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Apple's first slide-to-unlock patent was granted in 2010, its second in 2011, and on cue version 3.0 was just dropped on us. US patent number 8,286,103 issued yesterday and, as expected, it's even broader than the first two. The '103 patent moves past the limiting language of the first two patents that required that the unlock image move along a predefined path, or that it at least start and stop at predefined locations on the screen. The '103 patent now broadly covers continuously moving an image to a general unlock region on the screen to unlock the device.

Yay! Even more lawsuits incoming...

Indirectly silly arguments like that "feed" the patent office which employees more than a normal workload would require, and ofc the hoards of patent lawyers (in-house and 3rd party) that get to profit from issuing them, those that will represent them in court, to mediate, to advocate etc...

It is a "rigged" game, and guess who is paying for it...

This is not an argument for a "thinner government" or even smaller patent office - the contrary. It is about the hypocrisy of the system that treats the protection of the market and growth focusing on corporate and not public perspectives.

i'm sure another major company will contest that patent being issued. that language is far too vague for it to stand.

That actually sounds like a pretty good idea...
