    There is a difference between this and some Wiimote prototype.

    These websites only copy each others' distribution methods. You cannot sue them for that. Otherwise, there would only be one supermarket, one shoe store, one petrol station, etc.

    The difference here lies in the fact that phones are made of physical parts. I don't know of any patent over a distribution model but I do know that there are tons of patents for physical products.

    You can't patent a distribution method however u can patent components of a piece of hardware.

    So Sue anyone who releases a rounded rectangle, if you look at old patents there were tonnes of them before iPhone even sony had a design drawn up. All of apples products are owned by kids..there toys, if your an adult with an iphone your like a man with a etch a sketch

    I am not sure how this verdict ends up standing. There are just too many problems with this jury coming out now in some of these interviews.

    http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?s...12082510525390



    I would like to say judge Lucy Koh would toss it out base on all of the problems with the jury, but I am not positive she is completely unbiased(has past links with Apple and some of her decisions during the case). It should at least be overturned/reduced on appeals.

    That's the worst post I've seen in a while.

    Congrats, you're nominated for the Hall of Shame (if only it still existed...)!

Not sure why everyone is mad at Apple lol.

    Damn you Apple for sticking it to your competition!
    Apple sued based on a patent that was held by others before. Pinch to $#@!ing zoom. How else would it be done. Also the shape of it. It's a $#@!ing rectangle with rounded edges.

    Well seeing as shape of design was one of the patenrs supposedly infringed upon.

    I'm going to guess it's mostly the second part of his post that he's referring to.

    The way to save money in courts of law...

    They quit using paper ballots, etc., and everyone from the jury used iMessage and sent the verdict to the judges iPad.

    so now Nintendo can sue Sony for making "PS3 Move" because it's a motion control, uses a wand but also has the second piece for movement just like the Wii controller has a second piece as well? So in your reasoning Sony should be sued by Nintendo. Now of course they don't use the same technology as well as both the iphone and Samsung don't use the exact same technology either.

    It is noticeable though with those screens and how samsung changed, but see, that's competition, they have a big screen as well but that can't have a patent. it would be like saying only one company making a 52" TV can sell a license for other companies to also make a 52" tv.

    Here's a quote from a juror:

    Well, there were several [pieces of compelling evidence]. The e-mails that went back and forth from Samsung execs about the Apple features that they should incorporate into their devices was pretty damning to me. And also on the last day they showed the pictures of the phones that Samsung made before the iPhone came out and ones that they made after iPhone came out. Some of the Samsung executives they presented on video from Korea, I thought they were dodging the questions. They didn't answer one of them. They didn't help their cause.
    Sooo... with all these other Android platform phones out there, why aren't they all being sued as well? They are all pretty much the same in design, software features, etc.

    It won't stay @ $2B. This is not good for consumers either. I wonder how Samsung caused $2B in actual damage to Apple? I seriously doubt people went into a store wanting an iPhone, saw a Galaxy and said "Oh man, that's JUST like an iPhone.... I'll get that instead!". The funny thing is, vanilla Android is superior to all the skinned versions (IMO), and it's the least iPhone like of all the different versions.

    Also, funny how Apple copies Android features like the drop down notifications menu.... and sue other companies that make phones that are just rectangular with a black border and similar icons...

    Exactly. The costs will be passed down to the consumer.
