    Could someone be so kind as to explain exactly what feature on my iPhone and iPad it is that Personal Audio thinks they invented? Thanks.

    Yes, because Apple actually produces the things they patent.

    What don't you understand about that difference?

    Apple is the most-sued tech company in the world:



    http://www.appleinsider.com/articles...lawyer_up.html



    Defenses against such attacks include:



    * Buying patents first before someone else can use them against you. And if you have a patent, you must defend it.



    * Owning patents that give you leverage against those who sue you: match their suit with your own, so that both parties can settle and cross-license.



    * Owning patents that give you an advantage over the competition, to help your products compensate for patents they simply won?t license to you.



    * Fighting back with every legal means you have, to discourage a growing flood of suits against you.



    The game exists, sadly, and Apple didn?t create it. Can Apple choose not to play? No, they can?t.



    Do we see Apple extorting money using patents that are irrelevant to Apple?s business? I?ve seen no such evidence. In which case, Apple is not a "patent troll." Just the biggest victim of patent suits (from trolls and competitors alike).

    Last I saw this was not applefansonly.com



    Are we supposed to pledge allegiance to apple just to have an interest or opinion? If so, I must have missed that in the sign up.

    The complaint was filed in East Texas, which is known for making quick and favorable decisions for patent holders.



    Isn't the law the law? Oh yea, it's the system...

    Their ability to use playlists essentially, the PA patent concerned described a music player capable of receiving and playing a playlist.

    A "patent troll" is a company which often has "...no intention to manufacture or market the patented invention" in question.



    Because Apple does not fit this definition, Apple is likely no patent troll.

    Yes, but unfortunately they are required to share it with everyone else in that particular district.

    Let him hate. There will always be bitter, little people like him. But it doesn't hurt people who use and like Apple products, of which there are more every day. Maybe one day, Apple will actually fall. Until then, I'm not worried about it.

    Wow, you sir are a tool. Looks like you don't even know the definition of patent troll. The difference between Apple and "Patent Trolls" is that Apple actually uses it's IP to create tangible products while the trolls write down an idea on paper, and sue anybody that tries to use the idea.



    Good try though, fool.

    Personal Audio got really greedy.

    They wanted more Apple pie.

    Apple and NPEs can't be compared reasonably. Apple at least does what the system was originally intended to do in their suits: protect PRODUCTS they invent from being copied by a competitor. I am not aware of any cases in the last 10 years where they have sued a company that is not directly competing with them. (The mechanism of the suit is just as sloppy as the NPE trolls though.)
