Cute America, very cute.

I wouldn't be surprised if a patent like that got granted.

Exactly what I thought. Some of those patent descriptions are so vague they could be applied to any semi-intelligent, portable device.

The problem here isn't Apple, although they have odd business practices (no more so than any other large corporation though, other than Newman's Own) the problem is the patent system. It's archaic and was put into place to solve a problem now, not 100 years from now.

What needs to happen is once a technology becomes common knowledge, like a flat screen, or a rubber tire, then the patent needs to be invalidated. Heres an example:

Someone invents a display for your window, completely clear, you can use your windows in your house or car as monitors or televisions.
They file a patent.
US patent office grants the patent.
Company profits for 2 or 3 years.
Other companies start to copy technology or license it.
It becomes widely accepted that this monitor technology is superior to all others, no company wants to make old panels any more.
Patent office invalidates patent.

Or just no more lawsuits allowed, staff the patent office with some guys who take violations and investigate them, then fine the perpetrator.

Vote for me in 2016

I have to disagree. What if the competitors"borrowed" trade secrets and were able to replicate the tech?

Here's what often happen instead:

Situation 1:

1. BusRAM develops a new memory system that makes Flash, DRAM, SDRAM, and HDDs obsolete.

2. BusRAM goes under, and sells it to Rambus. Other companies such as IBM start to figure out how to replicate the technology.

3. Rambus sits on the patent for a decade without bothering to do anything with it, then sues everyone once the memory system is a commonly accepted standard.


Situation 2:

1. A company buys up millions of patents.

2. Then such company indirectly warns competitors to watch what they develop, since any products can potentially violate one of their patents.

3. The patent-holding company then does what it wants, with the competition knee-caped.


Situation 3:

1. I patent the concept of launching projectiles using explosives, even though prior arts existed at least hundreds of years ago.

2. I sue companies like Winchester and General Dynamics (the company that designed the M1-Abram tank) for violating the patent.


Situation 4:

1. I patent the concept of purely optical computers.

2. I then sue anyone that tries to market such computer.

Doesn't mean I couldn't try to do the same in other countries... Apple and Samsung also squabbled over patents in Europe, Japan, and South Korea. tongue.gif

U.S. Patent No. 5,666,502 : "Graphical user interface using historical lists with field classes" (filed in 1995)


This one is actually referring to a stylus device OS more than anything. I can see how they could go after Google for Android OS.. but they would also have to go after every OS made since mid 90's. The majority of it seems to be focused on history lists.

copied from http://www.google.com/patents/US5666502:

"SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Broadly speaking, the present invention is a data input technique for a computer that provides the user with a historical list of potential choices for the data input.

According to the data input technique of the invention, a historical list is displayed to the user so that the user can input data by selecting an item from the historical list being displayed. Preferably, the historical list is displayed over a form also being displayed. The form is an electronic image, typically of some sort of document, to which data needs to be entered into its one or more fields. The user inputs data for a field of the form by selecting an item from the displayed historical list which corresponds to the particular field."


sooo.. that might actually include OS's made before the patent date....

As I read that patent it came to me... why did smartphones take so damn long to come about?

Another generic patent. I hope it gets thrown out.

Oh look a childish comment.

Oh look another hate Apple thread, because Samgung is a benevolent and kind entity. You don't see these every day. I think maybe we should start posting news on all the Samsung lawsuits to balance things out. What you guys think?

More to the point. If you really think Apple is the only one engaging in this type of corporate warfare then you are either a fanboy or have your head so far in the dirt your hair is being singed by the heat of the Earth's core. This is OCN though so anything Apple brings out the seething and drooling masses.
