    They are not patents at all, they are what is known as "obvious" The Star and Bar, 4 circles and golden archers are trademarks as is Apples apple.

    Trademark violation...what aren't you getting?

    He's obviously 'not getting' anything related to a fundamental knowledge regarding what he posts... as usual.

    Way to dramatize this, Slash. You make it sound like Samsung and Apple are firing artillery shells at each other...

    What about the other four points brought up when the Samsung Tab 10.1 was banned?



    The Samsung 10.1n is still a RE-DESIGNED rectangular device with rounded corners which does not infringe on Apple's design patent (yet).

    Apple's lawyer should reply to the fourth charge regarding the emoticon suit with ":-(" and "III" (read between the lines)...

    Emoticons should have been declared an "essential technology patent" long ago.

    Without mobile emoticons all the joy goes out of iOS.

    Well, *technically* speaking, there is no such thing as technical patents. Let's get that into your head first, person.



    But I get your drift and do not entirely disagree.

    You are sure you're not confusing design patents with trademarks?



    McDonald's does have design patents but they are for packaging and store design. Insofar as the golden arches go, the shape and color are protected by trademarks, not design patents (as far as I know). Same goes for the interlocking rings. Don't know about the Mercedes logo, but would be surprised if it is protected by a design patent. There is a good reason (amongst many others) - design patents expire. Trademarks last indefinitely so far as they are in commercial use. One would not want the rights to a logo to expire.

    You can patent a rectangle, so why not an input method for emoticons?



    IP is still IP except this is a utility patent which is > design "patent"

    I thnk the smiley patent is for converting the into an actual smiley pic. Also come on apple has very generic patents also like a rectangle phone with one button on the face.
