Not this statement again. Competion is always good but everyone else seems to follow Apple. Apple shouldn't be the world's R&D department. It's frakking shameless that these competitors ape the Apple naming conventions.
The patent system is broken.How is it fair that one inventor invents something but does nothing with it while another inventor invents the same thing (not knowing of the first inventor) but actually does something only to be sued.
No because some other person or persons would probably invent the same thing and put it to use. They shouldn't be sued into oblivion by some entity who was just waiting for someone to violate the patent.Hogwash. Nothing is destroyed. Odds are likely someone else is inventing the same thing but instead of waiting for violators, he/she would put it to use.
