UBUNTU™, world, facing a U.S. trivial/prior art patents flooding problem
Problem with Apple™ (and also Microsoft™) trivial or "prior art"
patents is: One invalid Apple™ patent is backing the other. So, the chance of getting just one #patent declared invalid
, gets lower with number of trivial patents increasing, extremely raising costs for lawyers and court fee, typically to be paid in advance
Next problem: With "free trade agreements"
) your government is signing to respect american patent law
on your country's territory. You can't leave that out. "All or nothing!"
, they say.
Now have a look at Apple's brand new patent
, allowing the GPS tracking of friends
Problem: Back in 2008/2009 we already were playing the famous #Ravensburger
game "Scotland Yard™"
- life with Nokia™ mobiles, exchanging their GPS data in realtime
over a central server
, chasing a bad guy, periodically appearing
with it's GPS data on screen of 3-5 participants.
Developed by students at University of Bonn, Germany
Now Apple™ is coming up with same mechanism, described with slightly different words
, but, in fact, meaning the same.http://sam.iai.uni-bonn.de/publications/GI2009_SyGo_and_location_based_games.pdf
Stupid cowboys, again pushing company stocks
with ideas, they've stolen from other people?IMHO, Apple™ is overpriced, 1000 foldiOS - stolen
: A #FreeBSD
clone with Mach microkernel, called #DarwinObjective-C compiler
: Originally #GCC
compiler suite, now changed to #LLVM
Most Apple™ #patents
: Hot air!
Same for #Microsoft trivial patent suite
That problem now even becomes a threat for freedom of software development on #UBUNTUPhone
, independent of license!
So be warned! These U.S. companies are 'evil'
. Avoid doing business with these companies under all circumstances
