Apple sent takedown letters to retailers selling Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus devices. Is this a step too far?

- Apparently Scott likes to make broad statements will little or no evidence...the article clearly stated Sam's was still evaluating if it even affected them....doesn't sound like compliance to me.Jul 14, 2012
- I agree. I, for one, wouldn't shed a single tear if Apple suddenly vanished. I'm disgusted with their patent trolling. As far as Samsung hardware is concerned, Best Buy near me does not have the Galaxy Tab for sale.
That was not a broad statement. My statement was quite factual. There are two articles that clearly state Best Buy and Walmart executives had given a directive to their stores to cease selling the Galaxy Tabs. Since Sam's Club is owned by the same people as Walmart, they were to comply as well. Perhaps not in your area, but in mine for sure.
Your hostile post is duly noted, but unnecessary.Jul 14, 2012

- Interesting note with the Tab not being sold near you. But they're not exactly a homogeneous company to begin with lolJul 14, 2012
- Very true. Very true. Interestingly enough, Apple's injunction applies to the importation of these products, not the products on the shelves. There is no reason the retail stores can't tell Apple to fuck off. Next thing they will do is send equally threatening letters to the people that already own these devices, to dispose of them or face legal action.Jul 14, 2012
