A very serious patent situation for Android-based products, and upcoming troubles for Motorola, Nokia, and others.

Apple has won a patent infringement lawsuit that has the ability (and likelihood according to some) of

1) stopping the US import of ANY Android-based product
2) causing almost immediate loss of effective support for ANY Android-based product

F**k Apple! These f**kers are monopolizers. Purposely use some very vague software patents to kill other competitions. I think I saw a news that its proclaim the number one company on Earth, or something like that... ;)

Wtf! I bet Apple will soon win a patent over "a rectangle shaped device that uses electricity". Seriously this system is flawed as hell, I'd like to see how this patent will start to affect phone sales.

There you go being just too dog-gone specific again, Meats. Back to patent class for you. ;)

Don't limit it to "uses electricity". Write the patent with "manipulates string quanta" instead.

Otherwise all someone has to do to get around your silly patent is to invent an "ellipsoidal"(1) device that uses gravity, or anti-protons, dilithium crystals...hell, maybe even ZPMs or Chriss Angel.


(1)The "ellipsoidal" shape can even look very much like a "rectangle shaped device" by simply being "smooshed" appropriately in the axes to the point where it is just short of actually being one. Think of a smooth elongated, somewhat wide, and thin "skipping" stone (with truncated ends) from a river. It's an ellipsoid...and technically not a cuboid (derived from a rectangle).

>> Update: INJUNCTION SUSPENDED!!!
Capital! :))

The injunction preventing sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been suspended across Europe except for in Germany where the slate is still prohibited from sale.


However, curiously...

There's no indication yet if the allegedly inaccurate images of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that were submitted as evidence by Apple had any bearing on the suspension of the injunction.

I think patent laws are illegal, the only way a patent law should be enforced is if it can be proven that the infringement was intentional and the new creation was based on the patented device.

Wow Rhort thanks for that article man. I never thought I see such a thing. Heck instead of pictures why don't they give them the 2 actual products for the judges to see the difference?

That was some evil stuff Apple did.

Apple Patent Wins: Samsung Tablet Blocked from U.S. and Apple Awarded 27 New Patents
By Sarah Jacobsson Purewal, PCWorld Jun 27, 2012 6:00 AM
Apple is on a patent tear winning an injunction that bans sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the United States. Adding to its patent victories the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded Apple 27 new patents, including a patent for scrolling, rotating, and scaling documents on touch screen devices.
The patent win against Samsung is considered one of Apple's biggest wins yet.
