tdgeek:ibuksh: Well that all points back to something someone has already mentioned earlier in this thread and I would most happily reiterate.. the US Patent system is broken..
the patent officer sees its from Apple and says.."hey.. it must be their original idea, no one else could have thought of it before." and boom.. its patented to apple.
What would be more awesome is someone file a case against Apple for patenting ideas thats been around already for a long time and not their "original"
Patents laws right or wrong are not only/mainly used by Apple. All IT companies use them, heavily. Seems to me to be bias, correct me if I am wrong.
Of course all companies use them heavily.. thats not a doubt
But I suppose in this thread we were discussing how it stands with Apple & Samsung case, and that why the reference to Apple and whatever we have discussed so far in this thread
