- Does this seem like apple is trying to force everyone to use an iphone?Jul 3, 2012
- Haha, of coarse! And don't forget patenting existing technology, thats a good strategy as well.Jul 3, 2012
Yes but most of Samsung and others lawsuits against Apple are desperate at best and seem to be them trying to keep Apple off their backs. Apple has started the patent war with nearly all the companies suing them for infringement. It's no secret that Steve Jobs hated Android and would make it personal; he's even quoted as saying no amount of money would make him happy he will pursue it until Android is dead. Its not about infringement even, its just Apple thinking they own everything.Jul 3, 2012
- I really think this is how Apple rebounded from losing the look and feel lawsuits against Microsoft. They needed a way to continue the 'look and feel' and with some clever poking around figured out the way to do it: avoid copyright law....just go straight to patents, patent any thought or idea in your head, word it as broadly and vaguely as possible, and then unleash the lawyers.
By the way...to those who think Apple invented multi-target unified search...go look at Copernic Desktop Search for prior art. This, like the other Apple patents, needs to be invalidated. As for Lucy Koh, the manner in which she expresses herself show that she's already decided in her mind that Samsung is an infringer, and the trial hasn't even started yet.Jul 4, 2012
I think you hit it right on the head with the Microsoft vs Apple and their new method of patenting literally everything.
I also agree that Lucy Koh has already decided in Apple's favor. I saw someone saying that she worked with Apple and I couldn't find anything to substantiate that claim but I did find this: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=471983772811836&id=142798215730395
And here's someone that did more research on this decision by Judge Koh than I did: http://www.decryptedtech.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=985:judge-lucy-koh-grants-another-ban-to-apple-apparently-without-doing-any-research-on-the-matter&Itemid=139Jul 12, 2012
