 @Rogifan : according to the Ninth circuit:  "... has explained that “[t]rade dress is the totality of elements in which a product or service is packaged or presented."  the key word here is the "totality."  Designs patents are for particular design element.
 @freerange : Apple lost on all tablet design claims completely, everywhere.  In the UK, Apple was even ordered to publicly acknowledge this and Apple's hometown jury also rejected Apple tablet claims back in 2012.  That was not likewise part of the appeal this time around.
 @robm : go down.  
@spock1234  :  Sure, honey, and that's what exactly everyone else with the similar kind of patent portfolio charges. Do you have ANY idea how much everyone else is charging?   Ericsson is among the top contributors with large number of seminal and essential SEPs -- and there are perhaps only three or four others who could demand similar or higher rate, say Qualcomm, Alcatel, and Moto, not a dozen.  The exact figures are announced and published by the patent holders and...

 @sd-diver : Sure, but is that what's driving "market demand" for your car or Mercedes?   If folks are buying Mercedes just because of the wireless functionality, yes, otherwise, no. 
 @tmay : Sure, IEEE is one organization who thinks patent holders "may charge a reasonable royalty that is based, among other things, on the value that the patented technology contributes to the smallest salable component of the overall product," but it doesn't speak for all SSO's dealing with different kind of patents.  And, further, there is absolutely no court rulings affirming such trend toward the smallest salable unit.  I think we also reviewed a couple of court...
